Before That Demon In Me Appears

See my foot?
See how it lifts?
Guess where I can put it,
If you persist.

See my eyes?
And how over one...
I can raise and arch a brow?
See the exposing teeth I show?
Foam can begin to drip from them...
With a growl you just don't know.
My temperature is rising.
And a heat boiling within me...
Is starting to overflow.

Can you feel the steam,
Coming from my ears?
If I were you,
I would take two steps back...
Before that demon in me appears.
