The victim list keeps growing

But no one really cares

The gristmill claims another one

Keep your hands in and don't stare

A Fire In The Heart Of Our Darknes

leaning against the old wood pannels of the room
the smoke engulfed us like breath

Prisoners of their own success

Their world now micro-sized

Fan adulation to excess

Their love is just disguised

Their objects of affection

Live their lives inside a bubble

Concrete counterintuitive ratioed for looser and Leader;
Interim arguments to know who's worst and best person,
Makes no sense either.
Itemised unique personalities need no prejudice session. 
Sparked to negate fallacious  rudiments; deal art.

An abandoned dragonling I did find,
I took him in and built a metal shed

And his old Granddad
Just drinking and hanging
With the...
