Blood on the Statehouse

Elizabeth Lorrey


I hate you

I don’t even know your name

But I hate you

All the same

Don’t step too close

You might spread the disease

I’m afraid that your stains could rub off onto me

You’re an erosion of a civil society

A subversion, perversion of sanctity


And there’s blood

On the statehouse floor

God knows how we’re dying to spill some more


I love you…

think I forgot your name

But I love you- I love you

Yeah, we met on the internet yesterday…

Should we make up a list of invitations

Or rent a white limousine that can take us to Vegas

Well it’s perfectly legal to be married by Elvis

And God will be smiling in heaven above us


And the blood runs

On the statehouse floor

God knows the souls He’s bleeding for
