DELIVER ME FROM MY LIVER

I HAD A DREAM ABOUT MY LIVER
IT WAS THE KIND OF DREAM THAT WOULD MAKE ANYONE SHIVER
IT WAS LYING THERE ON THE TABLE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE
IT LOOKED LIKE SWISS CHEESE, OR A HONEYCOMB FOR BEES
I STARED AT IT WITH A TERRIFYING COMPREHENDING AWE
THEY HAD HURT ME, AND MADE IT COLE SLAW
I KNEW IT DID NOT LOOK LIKE IT SHOULD LOOK
I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT BOOK
YOU KNOW, TO WRITE ABOUT WHAT THEY TOOK
BY KEEPING ME ON THEIR NEVER-ENDING HOOK
I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE IN THE ROOM STARING AT MY LIVER
THEIR WERE OTHERS, THAT HAD LOOKS THAT MADE MY INSIDES QUIVER
FOR WHEN I TOLD THEM ABOUT MY LIVER, AND THE BUGS
ALL THEY WOULD DO FOR ME WAS GIVE ME HUGS
I TRIED OVER AND OVER TO EXPLAIN IN VAIN
THAT HUGS WERE NICE, BUT I NEEDED TO BE DELICED
THEY HAD A GLEAM IN THEIR EYES THAT TOLD ME THEY DID UNDERSTAND
THEY WERE HURTING ME ON PURPOSE, THEY HAD THE UPPER HAND
I WAS SO HELPLESS AND WEAK
I COULD DO NOTHING AS MY LIVER GREW FOULER AND BLACKER, IT WAS BLEAK
I WAILED WHAT WILL I BE WITHOUT MY LIVER, PLEASE DELIVER ME
BUT THE ONLY DELIVERANCE I WAS STARTING TO SEE
WAS THE ONE THAT CARRIED YOU AWAY IN A BOX
WHERE YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO CARE ABOUT HARD KNOCKS
