Happiness is a cigar called -
Happiness is oblivion.

Grey-faced, screen-fed.
Garbage in, garbage out.

sweat and stolen staples;
a year of junk

a box I'll never find.

"Your box was crushed
like a sugar cube
to feed the poor
and starving children on our
Your Nazi tactics
will not work, Mr.

These are the happy ones -
count them as they
All flesh is
All citizens will watch
