Barren now, like me.

    Mineral Crystals Grown within the Earth's own Womb Harvested by Man *** Ingest needed salts Forming a body within A Mom filled with Life *** The due date is here Remove the baby from her Traumatic feelings *** A belly grown big A mountainous mound of flesh She'll be barren soon *** A womb's a mountain Both contain something precious Both will be emptied
