Seized me in jagged vulture jaws
Sank deep your razor teeth
Tore from my heart all I held dear
Shook me til my soul rattled
And there was nothing left to take
Then you tossed me, Toto-like, into Oz.
Sans yellow brick or ruby slippers
You snickered, skipped away
Left me to die.
And then my Life began.
