soldier of the apocalypse

by Matthew Sharp

a thousand wounds and counting
only strengthens me
death is the only end
blood lubricates the passage
inserted divinely
reaping portions of fulfillment
selfishness slobbering in apathy
mandatory contributions accepted
shrines erected in immediate defilement

if i was a bird.
i would shit on everything.

it's a good thing that "$#%@" is such a good fertilizer.
