Poem: “Satisfaction Guaranteed”, fr. notebooks, Jim Stallings

Satisfaction guaranteed

You lovers of fact

Picture the war

Victims at your feet

The smell of putrescence

Rotten flesh charred

Gaping mouths

Missing teeth

Then see yourself

Parade triumphant

Cheering patriots

Proud of your mass murder

Sanctifying the madness

Of spraying bullets

Into a dark hallway

Where women & children

Crouch praying for your death.
