To THE ENCHANTED BLUFF

Millennium Beast

I'll come slithering in from the East.
I am the Millennium Beast.

From the tent of night to blue remembered hills,
Brute blood of the air, my lungs it fills.
Excess of love bewilders me as it spills
My life. My father's wife imprisons me.

I see the membrane through the pelvic bone.
I slither up the stairs to your splendid home:
Another threshold still unknown
To me, a fedayee born to the creed.

Virgins smile at me as I crawl by.
Elders nod to me from old Dubai.

From Eurabia to Londonistan, we'll tell you every gun is banned.
From Londonistan to Eurabia, we'll circumcise your labia.
You'll scream. My dream Is a prophecy.

All hail the caliphate!
You will kneel
To Allah the Great and his holy steel!

I'll come slithering in from the East.
I am the Millennium Beast.

Go back, back to the silence.
