Bacteria


Overpopulation
Creates immense
Frustration
They're everywhere-
The people
& All the power
Is in the hands
of the upperclass
I have to bust
My ass just to eat
& There are people
Crawling on the street
Who can't find any
Food to feed their kids
Who don't even have
Shoes on their feet
Where is God
When the Devil is
Screaming through
The sky like the
Loudest siren
I can hear them coming
For you
For me
So run
Or you'll be in
The hands of
The cannibals

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
