July 1999

this world
that rapes us
hates and kills us
we fight
and fight
and fight
but to no avail because the world
has us trapped.
never a thing of peace
only striving after vanity
and lofty wishful thinking.
everything about everything
will fuck with you
while demanding full compliance
with its every desire
saying, "be this way do that for me
only me think of me love me."
full conformity
yet not enough for this world.
