The Bone Idol - Epilogue

He prowls the night in shadows twixt the bat the rat and cat Keeps his hairless cranium hid beneath his tan rimmed hat And lest he scares the homeless like he's been born out of hell Behind dark shades his vacant sockets hide away as well Whilst for the law abiding he will rock and roll all day But show your criminality he'll lock you all away He often lifts his cranium it's where he keeps his gun Should Disney Pixar hear of there could be cartoon fun His clothes all tailor made to fit shed very little doubt On the notion that our hero has no flesh to pad them out But still his drainpipe trousers might perhaps be slightly wider Combined with winkle-pickers reminisce a human spider Desist young man he bellowed at a vicious gun armed youth The hooded villain raised his gun get lost or see my proof My weapon is my justice and my bullets are my truth In a flash our idol spat... And shot him with a tooth Whilst he has no need for food, he hasn't any guts He passes time by nibbling packs of jelly beans or nuts They bounce around his ribcage then they trail along the ground To feed Cedric his rat sidekick who follows him around And so he prowls the shadows where no lawful man shall dare Only those of I'll intent shall stand or loiter there But nothing here shall cause him fear nor get under his skin A knife glints in the moonlight and he cannot help... ...but grin.
