Pluck out my eye, for knowledge?
Shall I also- sever; my well endowed, phallus; to enter into college?
Perpetual sacrifice; fleeting moments; leading to betterment?
Severe indulgence; lacking sacrament,
Fate; the Tempest; full of wild accusation; intent for reason,
As yet; I stand, as I always have; and will remain; ten feet tall, seemingly bulletproof; despite season,
Gangster; savior; sheep; possessed of a faith?
Sheeple; sally forth; unafflicted, wraith?
Do answers exist short of, "The Longsuffering Gospel?", suffer?
Ceaseless, aggravated; state of being; lacking shield or buffer?
Humanity's curse; death; rot; sorrow; pain?
Take stripes, naked in the rain,
Creator, God of Irony, sardonic wisdom; a little much,
Heart grown cold; numb; devoid; as such,
I dare to fight; obscene existence; asking; why?
Refusal to lay down the sword; immortal; I can never die,
No purpose; only battle; stand; fight,
Never going to end; the starless night,
Does this battle; reward in kind?
It matters for nought; chosen to grind,
Eternal truths; Gods above do hold?
Existence; misery; perpetual; bold,
Know not destiny; nor fate,
Ending comprehension= death; has it's final date.
