Yo, hi, hello. I'm just your standard sarcastic, cynical, satirical guy who doesn't care much for acting in an 'age appropriate' manner, whatever that means. I write poetry and short stories. Not much else to say, really. Ciao!

No escape from the nonsense of this world Where every slip-up is a crime For which you’ll be held To account in an instant No chance for a trial No defence No such thing as forgiveness Payment always in blood Mob mentality rules We are fucked
