Rex Butters @ SDAI Sept. 21


look at its smile
look at its scowl
hear it whimper & whine
hear it wail & howl
always hungry
always in pain
always angry
always insane
stupidly killing
stupidly willing
to attack enemy spooks
doomed feedback loops
echo through the empty
heart & head
anti-life darkness
subhuman biped
