The Donkey-Headed Adversary of Humanity – Sleepytime Gorilla Museum

L'Heautontimoroumenos.

The Donkey-Headed Adversary of Humanity opens the book
The Donkey-Headed Adversary of Humanity opens the discussion

I am the adversary
And must remain the adversary
I am not yours to embrace
I am not yours to invoke

The Donkey-Headed Adversary of Humanity sleeps in the hall
Watches for signs of our imminent demise in the scratchings on the wall
The Donkey-Headed Adversary of Humanity sleeps in the park
Listens for sounds of our eminent decay in the singing of a solitary lark

Mankind is a plague
Breathing hell into every corner of the rotting earth
Even now in this our finest hour
I feel the hate of every stone, tree and flower

Even now we fall under the long shadow of the donkey’s ears
Even now we listen for the slow grinding of the donkey’s teeth
Lalala, we weep in the din of the stomping of the donkey’s black hoof
