Break Me

written by: J.Ahlberg



Press my buttons until they break
Bend my ear until it folds
Probe my tan to see it's fake
Leave my heart out till it moulds.

Press my eyes into my head
Stick my tongue between my lips
Sew my clothes with golden thread
Squeeze my mouth till it unzips.

Knock my knees until they bruise
Play my ribcage like a harp
Fix my bones with metal screws
File my blunt teeth into sharp.

I am scarecrow, yours to play
My turn next I hear you say.
