Soldier

Dann Lewis – Deakin University

 

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I know.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I remember.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I preserve.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I hold dear.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I need.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I yearn for.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All I want.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

All that’ll consume me.

Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill. Eat, drink, kill.

 

Death – My only reprieve.
