IT'S A TRAP
TO THE GRAVE UNDERGROUND
FROM THE WOMB:
YOU COME OUT
OF ONE ONLY TO BE
IN ANOTHER

CONDEMNED
BY THE SPARK OF LIFE
FOR THE GIFT AND
CURSE OF LIVING
TO BE TRAPPED
TO TRAP OTHERS
WHO ARE TRAPPED
WITHIN YOUR TRAP
WHICH IS TRAPPED
IN ANOTHER OTHERS

AND THUS TRAPPED
WITHIN A TRAP
WHICH IS TRAPPED
WITH TRAPPED
PEOPLE AND SITUATIONS
TO ABSURDLY BASK
IN THE NONEXISTENT
GLOW OF MORALITY
EUPHEMISTICALLY CALLED PROGRESS EUPHEMISTICALLY
CALLED CIVILISATION EUPHEMISTICALLY CALLED
FREEDOM
