As The End Times Draw Near, Kesha Leads
A Roving All-Girl Gang on Horseback

Kesha eats the man who wouldn’t let her eat
while Amber slashes Johnny’s face with stolen
iPhone screens Janay strangles Ray with elevator
cables Rihanna makes a mace with CD shards
jump rope iron fence post puts Chris right in his place
Sophie gives Stephen a thousand paper cuts makes
him write out all his Tweets with all of his blood I
find the boys break their legs chokehold them down
in the night keep them up I’m screaming YES YES YES.
