Cruelty and bravery come easy in youth,
as surely-as-slavery will later prove.
All is festive-false-fake-ferocity,
but it-is itinerant-illusion.
in repetition’s results-reality-reaches
with knowledge kindness-kindred-kinetic
Grace-granting as gravitationally-grooved,
acquaintances not lasting, limited-are-leeches,
and pretentious-performative-posturing is pathetic.
All hasn’t drained-drawn blood, discard-child’s-delusion,
claws-sharply-carved ‘twixt tearing-maw’s-teeth move,
being-all-besides death itself but another infusion,
malediction makes-age-more ruthless, told-truth.
