the child was there


and then

like some twisted shakespearean oratory

the child that was

to be


not to be

or was

simply blown off the face of


good earth

you see


good earth

is a fucking jungle

with armed enforcers


will shoot your lights out

for no obvious reason


bubble bubble

toil and trouble

cops are about to shoot you dead


a curiously amoral twist in the plot

is that cops

don’t bother to wash off the blood

yeah yeah

i know

bad sonnet and a quatrain be damned
