soy una perdedora (el verso perdido)

by Laura Doom

Through the years of xenophobia I waited
fleshing out my veins with a vengeance unabated
since the plasma bags sold, shut down the centrifuge
dark web rolled over punch-drunk leisure crews
Fill the headlines and set it to auto
self-drive crashes when the sensors suck on tremelo
Mother's in rehab for a DNA treat
scored a side-load of stem cells, passed on the porn suite
Some sick love-struck lipsync freak keeps shrinking my drink
claiming nuclear fission gives confusion the creeps
Why consume all the humour in the room
you take a blood bath in the morning and a mobile to your tomb
Just shade your eyes with some lies in the sun
burning down the questions that lead us up the Amazon
cull it

Soy un perdedor
I'm a user baby, so watch while it kills me
[single-minded slapstick]


Author's Note: A compulsion on reacquainting myself with this classic piece of cultural shape-shifting.
The original [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgSPaXgAdzE] was, I guess, original - this is just desperation.
