If you don't like something change it, if you can't change it change your attitude.


it lies spewed on the floor
then it awakens,
body shuddering
and twitching

that rat,
so smelly, so sly
that beast attacks
with his sharply polished claws

they caress the delicate flesh
a small stream of red
bubbles from the ravaged skin
forms puddles on the hollows of a face

the rat stands victorious
he peers into those empty orbs,
once so full of protest
that devil has done it again.
