A Room Of Truths, A House Of Rage by John Sweet

dead man will fuck you hard,
will ride god’s flaming stallion over the
corpses of yr children and call it justice and
if the landscape can only be painted w/ blood then
                                      there are decisions to be made

there are junkies to crucify and
politicians to hang for the tentative
promise of a brighter tomorrow

there is a nation of victims just waiting to
blame you for their problems but
screw that

draw strength from their misery and learn to
drink the marrow from their bones

understand yrself to be the enemy
                                            and laugh
