Thin Ice

Life is brief often too late
humanity realizes just how short
life is we’re tiptoeing on thin ice
the end can happen in the blink
of an eye too fast for the human eye
to detect and understand.

Sweet Tooth

The devil is a straight-up liar
that bitter truth will never change; every day,
a new con artist shows up proclaiming
the true gospel. Shapeshifters twist scriptures
for tickling, itching ears no questions asked
the people want to satisfy their sweet tooth
with ideas of a better place when this life is over.
