murderers

 

i drank scotch

i drank scotch

drank another scotch

and took a piss

and noticed the snot

on the walls

a graveyard of snot

dead by smearing

and dead by premature

picking

hanging

a sacred place above the urinal.

 

i scrubbed my hands

did not touch the bar

but threw down a good tip

and got away

from all the disgusting

unclean

murdering

motherfuckers

that could have been sitting next to me.

    “A graveyard of snot” and “sacred place above the urinal” are killer lines. Also…. fuck, dudes are gross.
