Happy Halloween…

By Simbarashe Mashambanaka As The Drtyreblyk

I invoke my beloved dead
Summon and conjure my sweet dread
My sexy walking dead roam these streets
Covered in the blood of eating flesh so sweet
Your songs, love songs open demonic gateways
Lying that you won’t haunt yet you torture and stay
Dragging aborted babies like unfinished business
At the scent of new victims and killing the witness
Like the Statue of Liberty highly held are the roses
Never-ending possession leaving seizures like drug overdoses
Tombstones carried like presents
The absence of love is so evident
Having a party of one through this self exorcism
Cupid shoots a dark laser from a jaded prism
In rituals, I offer my heart, genitals and spleen
Screw Valentines. Happy Halloween 👻 👻👻
