J.J. Campbell

brutal days ahead
 
there will be brutal
days ahead
 
the bodies will stack
up and the streets will
smell like a different
slice of hell each
passing day
 
war is not for the timid
 
or the weak
 
or the rich
 
war is for the ones
out of options
 
out of time
 
out of place in a society
that left them behind
decades ago
 
we're all going to die
someday
 
some get to have
their names in lights
 
others are for a dog
to piss on
