Today's poem is by Steven D. Schroeder
First Ty killed Jay, killed Jack, killed Rick.
Next the dead three set a trap for Ty,
caught her in crossfire, gunned her under,
but Jay stabbed Jack in the back and scattered
Rick with a missile. Then Jack forced Rick
off the cliff from which he'd dropped a rock
on Jay and rained grenades on Ty.
Rick popped back, beheaded Jack
with a battle ax, and picked up the body
to bludgeon Ty before he and Jay
chainsawed each othera bloody tie.
Everyone murders and rises and dies,
and no one says or even knows
what life is like after they lose.
