– ways to kill
there are many ways to kill humanity. one, murder. two, poison. three, choke. four, slit throat. and five, never kill but torture. use hands to mark places, the heart and mind. scream inside brains, shake everything. paint the walls red. rape. cut fingers. blind them with pellet guns. make them beg you for mercy. stab their faces. bend down and spit on them.
stand up, smile and tell them they brought this wrath to themselves.
