Scary Women

Words: Joseph Abbott
Music: “Pretty Women” from “Sweeney Todd,” Stephen Sondheim
Inspired by the webcomic “Narbonic” by Shaenon Garrity

Scary women
Holding weapons
Spiking coffee
Scary women
Scary women
Are a terror
Scary women

Sitting at a console or
Lurking in a lair
Something in them chills the air

Scary women
Planting implants
Stay within you
Stay forever
Laughing madly
Scary women
Scary women

Blowing up their rivals or
Cloning you for spare
Even when you leave
You’d best beware
They’re there

Ah! Scary women, at their beakers
In their labcoats
How they make a man scream!

Proof you’re mad too, as you’re staying
What we do for scary women
Scary women!
Scary women!
Scary women —

(Would you like a breath mint?)

This is the bio am I doing this right? Probably not.
