Liquor of Lament: My Glass is Half Full
Verse 6: I've given up love countless times 
I needed to pay up for my heartbroken crimes
I already repented for my sins that made my high hopes paper-thin
Don't you feel that envy from deep within?...

That's why I became a writer.

Premium Member War is a War Crime
Once wars were fought with sticks and stones
to flog the flesh and batter bones
and conquer lands, defending thrones -

The multitude (by hordes beset
with battle-ax or bayonet)
braved blades, dyed red...

Either had to earn the prize.

Happy is he who isn’t led astray
He walks in happiness in his stride
Tranquility is in His Word today

Blessed is he who doesn’t speak with ungodly men

designed to fire cartridges
with a kick like a field gun
a bloody victory

lacking conventionality
