Hammering, Hammering, Hammering
into my head
A constant, relentless hammering

You stupid
You stupid misfit
Go away
You damn stupid misfit

Pounding, Pounding me into
the shape of a beaten child
with swollen eyes and broken bones
screaming in pain

And I let them
I let them take out their hate
on me

because it's no use
fighting the whole world.
