The Slice

It’s the slice

That’s the price

Of the ultimate vice

Moreau’s teasy salome

Dancing in bright jeweled

And emerald anklets


The painting leaves me fixated

For the thrill of the kill

That’s so optimally sexual


It’s the slice

That’s the price

Of the ultimate vice

Moreau’s teasy salome

Dancing in bright jeweled bracelets

And emerald anklets


A lotus flower as a tattoo

Enigmatic hieroglyphic

Inked on her hand


A lotus flower as a tattoo

Enigmatic hieroglyphic

Inked on her hand

And the head on platter

Delivered in red sauce


And I searched every brothel

For an Egyptian hooker

With a lotus flower as a signature

And a hissy snake figure

But preferred Gustav Moreau’s


It’s the slice

That’s the price

Of the ultimate vice

It’s the slice that’s the price.
