Maternal Streak

You should have seen this girl

Half naked on a wintery night

I bet her mother didn’t let her out the house

Looking such a sight.

.

Tottering down the street

Skinny flesh in lamp lit glow

Where had she been? Where was she going?

I really didn’t know.

.

So I pulled over in my car

It was the decent thing to do

Wound down the window and offered a lift

Well I’m a mother too.

.

Her skirt road up on her skinny thighs

“Don’t you have a coat to keep you warm?”

And she tutted, yes she tutted

And looked at me with scorn.

.

So there she was this rapist dream

Ungrateful of my 4 x 4

A child with painted piss hole eyes

Aspiring little whore.

.

To tut at me when all I did was ask if she had a coat.

Well you should have seen her face

When I took my knife and slit her throat.

.

Thank heavens for the travel rug

It saved another steam clean bill

And wrapped in that she looked quiet sweet,

Much younger and so still.

.

So she was my first but not my last,

I saw it as mission,

We all have a place in life,

Mine cleansing the social condition.

.

And guilt? No guilt,

Don’t be absurd

I should win a prize

I’ll save your children from cheap white trash,

All flesh and piss hole eyes.

.
