This Life

This life has a hunger for chaos

An appetite for optimism

This life is an untrustworthy glutton

 

Beware and behold its packed plethora:

Word-of-mouth cheap assurances

Stuffed with promises of beginners luck

It emerges warped, needy and cunning

Theatrics blooming birth bloody screams

Cries blind no foul — swears reward in heaven

 

To begin a residency constructed

Of razored hooks and shifty background crooks

First carefully eye shiny joys

For beneath lie fetid trails

 

(I’m telling you right now, your guarantee is shady as fuck)
