Sick horses
They don’t know nothin’
They don’t know nothin’ at all

So give me, so give me
Teeth I can chew with
And just enough of that horse meat
To keep me all skittish

And oh
These teeth that tear
I know
Even predators fear

Scared horses
They know what’s comin’
They know what’s comin’ today

So feed me, so feed me
Horse hide and bile
And just enough taught tendons
To tie up my smile

And oh
These teeth that tear
I know
Even predators fear

I will never
Look like a lion

And I will never
Burst from the grass, to see
Take to flight, sink the bite
And drag that dead body

The meat I devoured
All but exhausted now
Bones I have carved into poems
Hard angles stabbin’ out

The hell am I eatin’?
Horse shit and silage
My plate is steamin’
Like the adage
Don’t look your gift horse in the mouth

And oh
I know

Dead horses
Love to do nothin’
They love lovin’ nothin’ at all

So cleanse me, so cleanse me
With bleach and ammonia
And just enough of that horse meat
To feed the nostalgia

And oh
These teeth that tear
I know
Even predators fear

I will never
Look like a lion

And I will never
Burst from the grass, to see
Take to flight, sink the bite
And drag that dead body
