This is the time To boldly go Where you’ve never been Before. This is the time To abandon rationale To foray Into the void. This is the time To dispel the myth Of a pursuit Of happiness. This is the time To embrace That which makes you Happy. This is the time, Because soon you’ll […]

Instigate

Seven voices Seven sins Strafe my mind With wanton whims. In flirtatious whispers They begin To wrought their will Through broken hymns. Sacrifice and evil deeds A chorus of depravity, Echoes around the fun fair ride, The melancholy of my mind. They’re closer now Nails scrape on skull Even tragedy Can’t be this dull They’re […]

In Justice

Imagine you’re a beached whale Turning rancid on some far-off shore Imagine you’re a dead hooker Embracing a suburban wooden floor, Imagine you’re a member of her clientele A dime-a-dozen corrupt officer of the law, Imagine you get angry, ‘cos you’re short of cash Beat the poor woman until her blood hangs on the door, […]
