Suffer Boy

Suffer boy drones on -
the bath salt catechism.
Grinding religion

for needy blondes.

He warns that the end is near.
And, that's the new beginning.
Jesus is coming back

to unfriend us all.

For Izy's prompt at Real Toads

Grinding religion for needy blondes...that has me rolling in the aisles.

Love every brutal uttering. Give it to 'em, sister!

Jesus as a fashion accessory--he would never make it on twitter, either--crucified by 140 characters. This is perfect and painfully hard under the hilarious.

"to unfriend us all" — today's ultimate threat, it would seem, absolutely apocalyptic.
Great stuff, MZ.

the grinding religion for needy blondes! Excellent take away, here MZ. I love how you picked up on a meta narrative in the clip and then just kind of owed it all from start to finish. viva la

Mary said...

I always begin your poems anticipating the killer ending line... and I wasn't disappointed. :)
