Hope and horror


tragedy?

oh there's
tragedy
alright

all those
putrid
fairy-tales
we
stuff into
the minds
of little children
are disasters
waiting
to implode
in the kitchens
of
the future

too
many happy
bloody endings
give a false
impression
of life

Snow White's
prince was a
chauvinistic prick

&
let's not
mention
those fuckin’
dwarfs
