Martial Law


My head feels played with

My heart has had enough

I need to get off this island

Before I burn in the sun

Empty beaches

And houses made of ash

Don't strike me as home

I'm beginning to crack

If the world still exists

I'll never know until I'm out of here

Tired of being stuck

Does God even care?

An honest wage

__I couldn't make

So America

__has shipped me away

They warned me Martial Law was coming

I thought it was the devil joking

Now I eat dirt

God this hurts

Soon I'll starve to death, I guess

Unlike the rest
