aphids crawl inside my bones,
i feel them when i lie in bed.
they’re eating me from the inside out
and they’ll eat me til i’m dead

my head aches from their poison
and my muscles from their bites,
noises sound far too loud
and daytime’s far too bright

sometimes it’s too much exercise
just opening my eyes;
the aphids must be inside
keeping my eyelids tied

my legs twitch
and my bones itch
all through every night,
i kick and punch against them
but i never win the fight

the aphids crawl inside my bones
and they never stop for rest.
my doctor says it’s chronic fatigue syndrome;
aphids don’t show up on blood tests.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
