Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 166
The Rush for the Kill.



Donate to the destitute

Sniff at the rich,

To seek the improbable

Quest is a bitch.

Porcine platitudes

Lost to mules

Who ignore good advice

To play us for fools.

Dead giveaway dreamers

Floating on air

Who stroll past pearls

To preen their hair.

Contentious bastards

Grind their teeth,

Obsessing with conflict

Asleep on their feet.

Beautiful bodies

Deplored by the boys

Who prefer their own gender

To feminine ploys.

Bearded babies

Found dead in the sand,

Mothers distraught

Militarily grand.

Losing the truth

Is humanity's skill

In removing the just

In the rush for the kill.
