She's one of the walking dead
A living ghost breathing in dread
Stark mad and rambling
Out of her head

Urchin neurotic, golem spasmodic
Human emotions, a matter of luck
Anonymous mongrel, orbiting trouble
Encoded instructions to self-destruct

Sick junky veins divulged in the spillage
Scattered soul parts polluting the village
Mechanical rage, black and blue shame
Supernaturally dull, defiantly vain

A skeletal ruin transcending gender
Not a vestige of hope left in her brain
She watched as her baby burned to a cinder
The smack overdose ending her pain
