The tougher the scuffer the bigger the suffer

       The vermin roam the hallways looking for a taste;
       They’re moaning to an eerie song as if they’re giving grace.
       The vultures listen carefully atop a pile of bones;
       The insect’s searches anything they’ll even eat their own.
The brimstone burns with fire fuelled by spent desires;
through the holes that once were eyes blows the cold of practiced liars.
The ladies with the magic touch will turn your heart to stone;
While the flesh is falling off of you exposing withered bone.
       Torment rides a dragon as old as sin its self;
       Cloaked in clouds of fiery red and known as khan the twelfth.
       And when you open up your eyes and think you have escaped;
       It’s just another magic trick from the waving of a cape.
