Skinned Alive!

Posted by Simon Parke, 16 August 2019, 12.33pm

I will show you the skins I have shed

Left in the grass as I have crept away

They are proof that I have lived.

Skin one: docile child

Skin two: obedient adolescent

Skin three: scholar masked in niceness

Skin four: stunning career girl

Skin five: charming child-mistress

Skin six: loving wife

Skin seven: marvellous mother

Skin eight:  admirable Christian

Skin nine: heroic saviour of abandoned children

Skin ten: nervous breakdown

Skinned alive!
