Wars of attrition Hatred, suspicion Your demons winning Souls crave sinning Oh the humanity Steeped in insanity Evil infiltrated Righteous mitigated Immorality incurred Our lines are blurred Unraveled, decrying Smile, you are dying
Inspired by Heath Ledger’s Joker from ‘The Dark Knight’

Own familiar landscapes,
But up is down, left is right.
Stands to reason that good is bad,
The virtuous are nefarious,
And random acts of kindness make the news.
