Peace--A Theme

Cat Food

     PAT first, of coarse, then
BPL Rising
tictictic said the toc
and squack
you're almost dead
don't talk
just sit back and watch your world be destroyed
you may think you can change things
but you can't
you have no control now
so just
give up trying
give up hope
because  whatever you do it's gonna be
BPL Rising

you! worldshatterer
gonna raise the dead
you're not so hot
gonna die like the rest
there's no escape from fate
because the trigger's been pulled
because the trap has been tripped
because  whatever you do it's gonna be
BPL Rising

etc., i'm sure.  That's the way (it was) Flunkie of life, never wanted
this trash.  3 years!  o,i couldgointo ALL the detailsbut...nonono

The Devil's Triangle

     Ah, but triangles so nice!  Not this one, caught in the very
devil hisself.  caphaltaa.  And always lose, always.  out! i want.
But no, rather into the depths of your depression.

Garden of Worm

Lookee here!  The reliks of being!  The trill of destruction!
A fined specimen:  4yrs, no warranttee.  Search warantee, mebbe.
Dust&dirt, not much more.  Methylethylethene.  Victim of poison.
Victime of life.  Typicalcase.  Next!
   Here, the flours of ages, stamped holy groundcovered ours shaken
lifes flow around peaceful, like forward and when, all done and said,
came back again to and frow and likewise said, too young to live but
furthermore improvements continue this sector and life improved whence
came the destroyers flowering buds allwrappedaround nonsense and no
meaning ensued in the resultant program but the speaker of the home
once said for hells sake lets clean up the sewers and then for an
encore the saharra dessert but rather the clicketyclick rathered

gnosticism antricism polycism albanism! and that's the ways thats
goes when the ballfalls and the ground breaks and the chaos leaps
up and mangles the words of wisdom just YOU be sure whats going on
high ways word iness ter ra ffled from the ghost of the most cereal
and waywardways but allaways gone to calculated paths leading from
the highest mountains to the crumbling wreckage below.  déjà vu

     I   look back   and
I say "Nonono, never again, it's never gonna be like that again.
It will be different; it WILL be different."
