#6. Love? Love is Bullsh*t; Love is Crap
‘Tis truly amazing, to watch what havoc you cause
To seemingly innocent folks who’ve done you naught
To some a blessing, and to others a curse
And to all sane minds what great madness you wrought.
‘Tis truly amazing to watch grown folks take reason
And at your behest tear it all to shreds
None is exempt, season after season
All is entangled in your mesh of deceptive threads.
‘Tis truly amazing to watch all live at your mercy
Fathoming not when or how you’d strike
Like blind sailors tossed away at sea
To your pitiless waves blowing whither you like.
‘Tis truly amazing to hear what myths you inspire
Tales of your glory, saying you are blind
I think not, for to cowards you are merciless and unkind
And your mercy, only the brave will ever truly find.
