Lines Upon Hearing the Smashing Pumpkins’ Single “Tarantula,” Their First New Material Since 2000

Billy Corgan, your vocal organ offends my tender ears.
I thought you were gone, but I was wrong, and you’re back,
   after seven years.
How gifted you are when you play the guitar, and how charming your
   changes of key;
But you sing like a weed on which dogs have peed — or that’s how it
   sounds to me.
