life
is so
damned
complicated

eat
drink
breathe
sleep
shit
piss
try to
work in
a frothy fuck
every now
and again

devastating

how
do we
do it?

oh

right

there's also
10,000 tons
of human contrivance
to dump over
what should be
quite a simple
if vital
affair

seven
deadly sins
of sewage
to drown
our basic
daily needs

we blame
our neighbors
and our gods
because war
and religion
are so much easier
than actually taking
personal responsibility
for our plight

Armageddon
laughs at us
from mirrors
where our reflections
were lost
so long ago
