How much poison still must I take inside
to cook the neurons in my brain
and make a vegetable soup out of them?
Can you live with such venoms in your life? 

  

How much blood must I shed or draw,
before my veins and arteries run dry
and my limbs hold no more liquid?
In an unshadowed desert can you thrive?

   

What if some day I end up losing all my blood,
while my vessels are with the venom overflowed!
Perhaps I would be living still or I would die
but would I be perfect for a life in the sand!

  

How much poison, how much blood must I interchange
before the world accepts, I’m no material man?
