4th – Lament of the Lonely Dean by Gertrude Curtis

ALAS THE AFTERLIFE IS CROOL. AWEARY

AWEARY

EGOG MY BONES THEY RATTLE THEY

SHATTER

BY THE LONELINESS I ENDURE

DAY 2 DAY

EGOG

I DESIRE 2 BE CARESSED

BUT ALAS I AM A PHANTOM

OF A LUSTFUL NIGHT

BLESSED I SHALL NEVER BE

OHHHH ALAAAAS

i died with my cherry still ripe my garden unflowered

my menstrual stream

runs softly

to the tune of my weeping lament

far

in the valleys of

death.

EGOG.
