the words

By John Sweet

the words

the truth is both
punishment and gift

do you believe this?

doesn't matter,
really

your opinions have meant nothing
your entire life,
so we might as well
keep it that way

and let's have a
moment of silence, maybe

everyone is sorry about
your father's death,
but then he owed everyone money

it's a beautiful symmetry

it's supply and demand
taken to
its logical conclusion

in the kingdom of nil,
we are all found wanting
