Kindred
by JS Schilling

I hate this war-
I got no legs now
lost them somewhere
blown the fuck off my body
who really cares though
point is
they are gone

How will I ever have the power
now
to thrust deep into her legs?
to plant my seed
with the all those
"Brad Pitts"
running 'round the world
yeah,
she really wants me now-


O'
"it is easy to become a slave
when you 'is whipped like me..."

I ain't got no legs
and ya'll say,
"God bless me!(?)"

Hell,
in years hence,
I will just be a story
(a crazy story)
some rookie cop tells his partners,
after he deals with me and my pain

"Man, I think he lost 'em in Iraq
or 'da 'Nam or some fucking place...
he was shouting at his 'ma,
''deys commin, 'deys commin for me mo-mma!'
...crazy S.O.B. ."

Yeah,
God bless me...
