Mortal Combat – Jeanie Richards


Send the young ones first

The prospects

The fodder

Feed them stories

Of heroic conquest

Utu and uppers

pick a colour

black or red

pink is not 

welcome here

and white

is for pussies

point out enemy

plug-in carnage

target the weak

circle back


take downers 


send out the young ones first

leave the wounded

they’re all red now

dig graves

missed the point 

nothing heroic here
