on “The A Word” by Choice42


you try to dress it up

cover its stench


the ugliness of

this horrid thing

you do

make it

less repulsive

less reprehensible

more reasonable

more seemly

make it



the neighbours wont

run away from


when they see you

might stick around

to talk

to listen

maybe nod

their understanding

perhaps even

their agreement

to your hellish word


discreetly turn their eyes aside

to not see the blood you wear

with unjustified pride


try to hear a more pleasant sound

than these screams of death

that echo in your rooms
