    Look at all these fools lying!
    Screaming how they wanna make sweet love to you
    Yes!
    I too want to make love to you, but can’t
    Only God could create something
    So Beautiful
    So Incredible
    Me,
    I can only trace back
    the dirty tracks of civilization with you
    So let me lift you on top of this modern desk
    Take you back to B.C.
    Before Christ
    Before the Couchie
    Let me strip away your garments like lost time
    Watch your panties drop to the floor
    Counting decades,
    Centuries pass by
    Until we re-enter the Ice Age,
    The Great Shiver
    Remembering how it felt to the first ones
    Desperately needing warmth
    We too are in search of that flame
    Fire
    Rubbing our foreheads violently together
    Like two smooth stones to create a spark
    That will ingnite us into survival as
    Minutes go by
    We create Language
    Making this A-sound
    Cause consonants aren’t needed yet
    Only the constant movement of our lips
    No plurals, only us,
    in the singular
    As spoken word be birthed through
    Broken body
    Rock solid had body
    Thrusting us into the Stone Age
    From whence we learn each other’s hands
    And what magic lies in touch
    Very soon we will find the intelligence to make tools
    With our hands
    Grappling hook by means of bare fingers
    To hold us together through this storm
    This evolution of our bodies of knowledge
    Only inevitable to progress
    Into a Bronze period, an Iron Age
    As I pin you to the iron made posts
    Of my bed
    I'll mold the very first weapon to hurt you,
    A metal tipped arrow,
    I can’t resist
    but to shub it
    right into your heart
    And so it begins
    The downfall of man
    The lack to create love
    The love to make war
    So stop your screaming and fighting back
    I’ll have my taste for your blood
    Spilled over me
    Run into your body a lone gladiator
    As if it were the Great Roman Coliseum
    Not to be overcome by its infinite beauty
    And wide space
    Because I am destined
    To beat up every living thing in it
    Everything inside these walls
    Everything in you
    Until the floor is mopped red
    Until these sheets cry color and
    I finally win the crowd
    Win you
    Then will my long wait be over
    Then will I hear this Coliseum Roar
    Hear the first Cry of Civilizaion
    Hear the beginning cries of a Family
    The beginning
    Of our Empire
    But like I said before,
    I can never make love to you
    I can only give you
    Civilization.
