Shoggoth had crawled off the dead headless form,
Though still twitching and warm, of my neighbor.
One less loud stereo played in my dorm,
And I felt like performing a favor.

Chorus: Slowly they found me
And slithered around me.
The scent nearly drowned me:
Those multiple tentacles.
I know that I want it!
Oh, let me confront it:
I long to be thoroughly coated in slime.

Slowly a head formed with three beady eyes
That all gleamed with surmise and intention.
Tenderly, tentacles touched my bare thighs
In a manner more wise not to mention.


Silence prevailed, like the eye of a storm,
As if all of the dorm were recoiling.
Shoggoth oozed ’round me, engulfing my form
Like a milk bath so warm it’s been spoiling.


Daybreak, and I wake to smells of decay,
And a languorous, sated, warm feeling.
Shoggoth has had his unspeakable way,
And the pool where I lay is congealing.
