In This World of Attrition

In This World of Attrition

by  Anonymous

This world
Has been through too much
What it has seen, what it can be
The destruction of humanity
You were promised
A perfect world

You were deceived
And you will need to leave
Once you are gone
You’ll be forgotten
In this world of attrition

Must I say it once
This world is fucked
And death has touched
These lives have sucked

So this is what I say

Go fuck yourself, you fucking whore
You have destroyed this fucking world
Fake promises bringing the word
Has surely created a fucking war

This world
Has seen much worse
Than all the rest
Promised to be the best
Did we pass the test?
Yes

Promised to let us make
Our own history
But times have told
That they made our history
Yeah

When mistakes are made
They say they’re always made
And it’s okay, what lies they say
As they quickly judge you day by day
Just as a body would decay

So this is what I say

Go Fuck Yourself, you fucking whore
You have destroyed this fucking world
Fake promises bringing the word
Has surely created a fucking war

With everything that has happened
I say this

Go fuck yourself, you fucking whore
You have destroyed this fucking world
Fake promises bringing the word
Has surely created a fucking war

Go fuck yourself, you fucking whore
You have destroyed this fucking world
Fake promises bringing the word
Has surely created a fucking war

In This World Of Attrition

Author: Angela Grant

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

          1. Mentally deranged? But of course, mainstream artists always are. But then again, they are not artists in my book.
            To me, the ones interpreting artists (e.g.teachers, art critics) should check if their brain is in gear, and consider consulting a non-mainstream therapist. They’re like so called political analysts. They too don’t know what they’re talking about, and yet are convinced they must tell the world their crap.
            Super hot men would have never put a spell on you.
