 The Dispatching of Dante 

 We knew each other many times before
 You called me your little whore 
 Then Screamed I'm not a homo anymore
 But you are my paramour 
 I would reply

 We were very sly
 Touching each others thigh
 Longing to gratify 
 The urge to strangle,via our necktie 

 All those whom we'd shanghai
 Would cry,
 Let out a final sigh,
 And then die
 Sorry but their time was nigh.

 I can not lie,falsify, or vilify 
 I'd mollify, rectify 
 You told me goodbye
 I found a new guy
 You said not to pry 
 O my how things have gone awry 
 I did not mean to imply
 I will do what you say I will comply
 Started to spy
 Evolved to vie 
 Then to terrify, on to mortify 
 Now I die.

Requiem for San Francisco mourns all the changes surrounding the Bay Area, of the piece Yolanda says, "The City has changed, and she has changed me."
