“Endless Men’s Hate”


Matthew Wilson



I didn’t feel the bullet in my heart

I fell forward without enough breath to drown

When I awoke from the puddle he was waiting

The evil thing with yellow eyes.


When he made the deal the sun was hot

The men were wearing different uniforms

I wondered where the flying machines came from

But I stopped thinking when something hit me.


The man with the scythe was smiling

Tickled by our brief reunion

When he snapped his fingers I smelt smoke

Screaming when I saw metal tanks coming at me.


I do not know how many times I have awoke

Seeing that men will never end their anger

Awaking in one battlefield after another

To the thing with yellow eyes enjoyment.
