Otep - Suicide Trees

their watery deaths: ribbons, plaques and soft-soap are the ephemeral rewards paid

to the slaves whose selfless

Accord a higher value to their masters, while parting gifts (bolt pistols) console

the rest. the remainder. too bad the tributes paid to lives that relegate these

thrones to lives spent valuing

Runners-up, are known to be neither fleeting nor desirable. but nothing surprises me

these days. i just sit and watch the box-cars roll by and wait. patient. unattended.

a package under a termin

Nch. a short fuse to scatter steady hands if i forget to remember that better lives

have been lived in the margins, locked in the prisons and lost on the gallows than

have ever been enshrined in
