One by one I’ll gouge them out, each and every eye.
Keep them shielded from the truth, encompassed with an elated crush.
If they cannot see me then, how will they divulge this lie?
Surrounded daily by my lovers, all my companions are here.
Dancing, laughing, keeping time,
They think me the queen, their Nefertiti, oh- they hold me so dear!
How magnificent, how stunning, I must remain to those who cannot see.
I can hide the ugly, the villainous thoughts, the way my eyes shift about,
Because all these friends blinded with avidity, have no idea what a danger I can be.
