No one saw it coming but
death arrived in a batsuit
and crapped all over our party.
The American party with the pretty white fence
which insulated us from
and poor Mexicans and blacks.
Welp, Look America, here’s a new friend:
Maybe you haven’t given her much thought lately,
but look how stealthily she creeps into
your mind like a toxic lover.
I’ve been dancing with her for a while,
trying to introduce my friends so
they can keep her on their minds too.
It’s a fool who rejects my invitation.
More foolish still is he who knows her
but doesn’t prepare for their wedding night.
