Return to Bella Meow ~dianegreen




Manuel high in a tree

Too young to carry an M-16

It’s heavy now

But heavier still

He’s always had it

And he always will


Drool your seething words on me

I’m here to destroy your empire

The chain chain chain

Is clenching

Someday it will kill

Don’t try to take chances

This ragged soul will
