The Shot Focuses On The Main Character, A Chipper And Optimistic Go-Getter In A Dreadfully Inappropriate Situation. - Poem by r.e. weatherfield

the scene was awful dark and dead
full of what fills a scared child’s head
who tears her Barbie dolls apart
and stabs them in their happy hearts.

a man with bad intentions sought
to find himself what he’d ought not
with his black eyes and torn out hair
and dirtied whore who sat and stared.

she wished for suicide to be
roman; pure; filled with jubilee
but what lied before him that day
for that i write, so hear me say:

it was a thousand skulls
from Golgotha
and one of them His own
he’d search like a man
in Afghanistan
and die there. he’d explode.
