bullying
these things win
these things matter
these things
now define America
no wonder
we’re fucked
no wonder
we’re screwed
no wonder
we’ll lose
in the end of all things
these things
these terrible things
these things
these awful things
these things
these fiendish things
these things
these evil things
we created
these things
we live
these things
we are
these things
