Rome will Burn (Again)



Arson always seemed

like a terrible idea to me


But here I am

Dressed in moonshine

with matches in hand


Ready to burn down

the establishment with

Molotov fury


Mega annum of evolution

and I am brushed with

war paint in the ides

of my celestial ritual


Wings of the effigy

stare naked eyes at



More fuel shall be

added to the Fasces

until creation itself

is drunk on fumes


A bonfire will wash

away the stench of

inverted totalitarianism


And usher in a renaissance

unrivaled in human history






Nordic Miseries



Loki secretly

cries at night

for killing Baldur


Hugin and Munin

see far too much

for Odin to handle


Freya championed

the battle, but lost

her bravery


Gungnir and Mjolnir

sit idly by while

Thor partakes in trickery


The whole damn house

is falling down
