With that thinly sharpened steel operating device;
A prima facie harmless agent of transmission,
You pierce your erotic bronzed skin
As you embark on that Sisyphean.

When the transmitting agent meets your ever looking
And luscious tanned-coloured skin
A package is deposited into the vein via the tubular vessel. 
At that delivery point with the first quick sharp pain
That sets your hippocampus excitingly agog
Euphoria is born; that magical feelings
That makes every seconds of your life so precious
That superlunary mantras begin to form in your brain webs
And you begin to feel omniscient. 

Your euphoria metamorphose as the steel pierce your vein
The reception hymns to your delight with tintinnabulum
As the fluid flows into your bloodstream
The rhythm of the euphoria perfects its worth.
Swiftly for all you’re worth
You’ve come to a Rubicon where you worth nothing
But a needless object with your needle.
