A Cocky Swede


I'm the King,
I'm the Master
I love no one but myself
Loudest is my laughter
I'm the only one
on my shelf.


Where hurricanes
are daily
that's where I rule
The volcanoes
respect me highly
my integrity is cruel


I turn joy into disaster
I rip beauty
with my hook



Lightning cannot strike faster
than where I
set my foot


My goal is to scandalize
anything but
my name
I anticipate to vandalize
eternity, accepting every blame


as well as persist
my words as eloquent as Shakespeare
denying, abjure, resist that I'll never be shaken by fear
