Her big pregnant belly
and hulking milk filled boobs
looked like meteors about to
destroy the earth
and while i smoked a cigarette
i prayed that they would.
The man who controlled the weather
for the challenger launch
when it exploded and killed 8 men said
"That was a mistake God made.
I don't know why he picked me,
but when I meet him next in going to ask him.
“Why did you pick me? You picked a looser"
and then he started crying.
And I have a few things i
Have to get off my chest when
Me And the big man finally meet
Which will be soon enough,
But soon enough
is not now
And if there is a god
I don't like him
I tried to install the new
Microsoft word program
to a lap top I found under a bed.
I couldn't do it because of license agreements
and software upgrades and as a 31 years old I couldn't justify spending
140 dollars on an online update.I was so "old man paranoid" that the interwebs
would steal my credit card details.
I was scared.
I've always been afraid
I'm constantly petrified
I closed the lap top.
Put it back under the bed.
I washed my hair in the sink with morning fresh.

Here’s a really fun fact I’ve learned recently.
These are American Slave-Making ants, they have an odd behavior where they steal the pupa of other species of ants and force them to carry out tasks for the colony instead of creating minor workers themselves. This specific picture is of a slave that is no longer responding to its captors so it will be killed.
By October of 1972, the voices inside Herbert Mullin’s head were telling him that he had to kill. He believed that he was personally chosen by Albert Einstein to murder people in an attempt to prevent an earthquake. He described this mission as “singing the die song.” He later explained to a psychiatrist:
“You see, the thing is, people get together, say, in the White House. People like to sing the die song, you know, people like to sing the die song. If I am president of my class when I graduate from high school, I can tell two, possibly three young male homo sapiens to die. I can sing that song to them and they’ll have to kill themselves or be killed - an automobile accident, a knifing, a gunshot wound. You ask me why this is? And I say, well they have to do that in order to protect the ground from an earthquake, because all of the other people in the community had been dying all year long, and my class, we have to chip in so to speak to the darkness, we have to die also. And people would rather sing the die song that murder.”On 13 October, 1972, the voice in his head shouted “Why won’t you give me anything? Go kill someone! Move!” - Mullin responded by bludgeoning a 55-year-old drifter to death alongside the Santa Cruz mountains. Two weeks later, he picked up a 24-year-old hitchhiker and stabbed her to death with a hunting knife. He then dragged her body into the bushes and disembowelled her. The next week, he entered a confessional at St. Mary’s Church in Los Gatos and stabbed the priest inside to death. During his murderous rampage, Mullin attempted to enlist in the Marines. The recruiting officer said he was very impressed and described Mullin as “highly intelligent and motivated young man who most likely will be a credit to the corps.” The following week Mullin killed five more people, including two brothers that were 4-years-old and 9-years-old, in a secluded area of the Santa Cruz mountains. He then came across four teenage boys camping in the woods and shot them all. His final victim was a 72-year-old who was shot while working in his garden. He committed this murder in broad daylight and was quickly apprehended.
