ode to elmer

a man on my finger
a man on the moon
a quaking salt shaker
fills my spoon
a corpse on a tidal wave
a kid with a knife
a snow globe of riches
takes your life
a poem of cliches
a poem of rhymes
I'm on a pedestal
and it feels fine
a bunny with antlers
a Barbie with teeth
can steal my purity
can steal me
