Dystopia

We’re making false Gods from
the idols
of alcohol and drugs,
suicidals and cases in
psych wards
go backwards into
side wards and pray,
the antichrist is on holiday
but his stand-in stands in for him
things have never looked better
if
you believe in that shit.

taking the time out to time out
thinking
this isn’t the line up
but the time’s up
and we’re screwed.
