Suicidal March of the Worms – Scott Thomas Outlar


The only thing left
to accomplish before I die
is to write a poem
that makes your eyes bleed
just from looking at the words.

I hereby announce
my candidacy
for President
of the Divided States of America…
in 2028.
Let me at
those nuclear codes
because I’m feeling
nothing but red
right now.
Perhaps I’ll cool off
over the next twelve years…
but I doubt it.

In the meantime
maybe there is
an assault riffle
I can get
my grubby little paws on
so I can shoot
one thousand rounds
per minute
through every amendment
while taking
the Constitution
down in flames.

Hell, it’s being done systematically
at this point anyway,
so why not
hasten the demise
of freedom and sovereignty
by completely turning the reins
over to the statists
so they can set up
their delusional paradise on earth?

I want to watch them fail
because schadenfreude
runs rampant
through my veins,
and my heart
is one beat away
from complete madness.

An eruption
is right around the bend,
so come join me
at Yellowstone Park
where we can dance
as the plates shift
and the sky falls.

Some say love is the answer,
but I’m full of black coal,
so I’d rather see chaos
unleashed from the lion
that rages loud
just to see who will fall
at its feet to be devoured.

The only thing
I have left to accomplish
before I die
is lacing this cancer
into the marrow
of every bone
in the body politic.

When will the heads
start rolling?
I want to be high
as a kite
on that day
so my feet
don’t get swamped
in the blood.

The only thing left
to accomplish
before I die
is to sing
this dark lullaby
that weeps
and wails
through the night
with promises
of pestilence
upon the populace
which is fated
for the same
as the worms
and I.
