    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.
