The Game

The scores are in
And violence wins!
Bull’s eye! A perfect hot!
Let’s gamble with mortality
And make a game of it.
With clubs and spades
And razor blades
We’ll sink their battleship;
We’ll stab and slice
And roll the dice,
A new, improved, “Go Fish!”
Cheat, steal, and shoot
And diamond loot
The first one caught is “It!”
And when it comes to sudden death
Our teammates’ throats we’ll slit.
The last one standing wins, of course,
Alone and kinged he’ll sit
And sigh and see that nobody
Alive can honor it.
