Nihilism As An Art Form

Empty rooms,
Crowded tombs:
No resurrections here.

Show me your Messiah,
Show me your God,
Or even one gramme of evidence,
But donít try to sell me a pound of your faith.

Love?
Sex!

Murals chill,
Graffiti thrill;
Bare walls better still.

If you do it, do it right,
Do it quick, donít take all night.
From a view to kill,
Wipe,
Snipe;
Here we go Mr President,
You and me together:
Watch the birdie...
History here I come.
