The Ballad of Thelma and the Sleaze

Thelma and the Sleaze are coming for you
Gunning down the highway
With guitars in their eyes, like stars

Bigger than life
Full of that '70s swagger
B-movie queens on the rise

Heading to your town
Gonna take it over
They'll charm your women and drink your booze

Yeah, these chicks do it up right
Night after night on the stage
Leaving nothing behind but your dreams

They won't stop
Even when there's nothing left to give
Gonna conquer the world while you weep

Bigger than life
Full of that '70s swagger
B-movie queens on the rise

Thelma and the Sleaze are coming for you
Gunning down the highway
With guitars in their eyes, like stars

Emily Dickinson on Poetry

“If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?”-Emily Dickinson
