at the base of their tail lyrics – lugubrum

my ship stranded on a rock
colonised by sticky beings
with unsound perception
i stood and stared into the rat’s eye
malingering gleam
betraying the organ ‘kundabuffer’
i severed the tail
and ingested the poisonous tentacle
it tasted not of home
i dined on my loved ones
my smell was not my own

/ lugubrum lyrics
