Rape Game

so you were
standing at the gate
could hardly wait
parents waving,
water in their eyes
as they said a prayer
for their very special girl

I can guess
why you’d wanna come
cuz where you’re from
people always told you
how you shine

a face like that,
oughtta be in pictures

praying that you land with a back bone
but it’s gonna snap like a wish bone
when we get our hands on your no-name
then you’re gonna break in the rape game

your own place,
even if its small
brittle walls,
cracks in the plaster
black specks
crawling on your bed sheets

you laid awake and thought about horses
and going home but you never will
you’re here until
jesus comes or the Beatles are forgotten
(jesus comes with his penis in your bottom)

maybe there’s a switch in your back bone
flip it and it snaps like a wish bone
when we get our hands on your no-name
then you’re gonna break in the rape game

[simultaneously:]
you’re just a girl who needs a scene
and we’d love to see you kneeling
you’re just a girl who needs a break
and we’d love to see you broken
