    dotsThe Halls of Usherdots

    Written in Ushers Fall is the fate of my ilk
    Its house of opulence now rotting in its pit
    Beneath my feet

    My addiction to its luxury
    To the piquant of my comfort
    Will lay this curse upon the families of myself

    And at my table
    Your most delicate of offerings are but the products of campfires
    The mere parodies of the cream I so desire

    Such is the sumptuousness I require
    That upon the heads of starving children
    I will strike with golden hammer
    And monkey brains
    Will be the taste
    On which the delicacy of my palate shall savour

    I am clothed in riches
    They drip from me as silken raindrops
    To wallow in the indefatigable securities of my wealth

    A pinch of salt
    To snub those irksome classes of plebiscites
    Who are but the dross beneath my boots

    Such is the lavish I pour with wine
    Into the coffers of my life
    To break upon the tender necks
    And crush against the fruit of tenderness
    With the heel of the laws
    I so contrive to feed me, endlessly

    Aye ! It was so in the Halls of Usher
    Where I chewed in greed on the fat of the land
    And grew to marvellous pomposity

    And unsatiated held my estate above all others
    Peering down the contempt from my dizzying height
    On all those who had not attained the subtle appreciations of my life

    Piss on humanity
    Those bottom feeding parasites
    Those scrabbling unclean minions
    Who follow my lead and swear their allegiance
    To the grotesque feedings
    Of my desires

    Let them marvel at Usher !
    Let them swarm and multiply upon my Earth
    Let them consume the poison I feed them

    Let them drown in their own ignorance
    Die for the sake of death
    To perpetuate my new world order

    I am unrepentant !

    So heaped upon my golden edifice
    And so nailed upon my cross of preciousness
    Will the bane befall these trinkets
    By I the parasite elite
    Within The Halls of Usher

      i gather this to be some sort of confession from a rich baron, governor. who loathes the poor. sees certain aspects of his existence to be unfair but chooses to be least bothered thus he declares himself -unrepentant
    my fave lines were scattered so to speak like when he thundered- i am clothed in riches then also where he said -unsatiated i held my estate . like this but the begining lost me a bit til i caught up. nice one
