Hope you enjoy it and stay to check out some of the other stuff on there too.
Every step can be red,
If we let it,
And that rage will eat us up,
Make us forget,
Are just people,
A rubics cube,
With no one word answers,
That bullets can ever solve,
As they travel,
On their pain bracketed way,
We’ll forget that,
And who we are,
As we gnash our teeth,
At the unfairness of it all,
Like we’ve suddenly found,
The tooth fairy doesn’t exist,
Why should the haves have?
And the have nots not?
They’ve got fuck all,
That some should starve,
Whilst others sleep on feather beds,
And have cream in their tea,
What a world, ey?
No guiding hand,
No moral principal,
That shapes it all,
Beyond the lies we tell each other,
To keep a bleaker truth from damaging our day,
Howl and froth all we want,
And we might even be better for it,
But in the end,
We make our own,

Five hundred miles from the Scottish Highlands and the weather had followed him like an old friend. Ben gave the whistle he’d borrowed from the P.E. department a blast mildly surprised it still worked with all the water in it.
“You, Jaxon, isn’t it?” he scraped wet hair out of his eyes. “Play by the rules, or I’ll send you off.”
The youth who’d just thrown a punch at his opponent gave the teacher a surly look and went back to chasing the ball.
Ben felt a tug on his arm.
“Wait son. Not everyone can be on at the same time. You’ll get your turn.”
“No, sir. That’s not what I meant. Whose dog is that? Is it one of those fighting breeds?”
“What dog? Where?”
Ben peered through…
