Dead Sparrows

8.15pm.

‘Reality Asylum’ – Crass

I saw two dead ‘baby’ sparrows today.  Fallen from their nest-home in the roof of a huge shed at the Lorry Yard.  Fallen to the hard stone steps below, unable to survive, unable even to prevent their descent, untutored and featherless.  Flightless.  There they lay, still and dead.  Deformed by their impact.  As I inspected them more closely, my blood curdled at the sight of parasites that had so quickly penetrated the bodies of these unfortunate creatures.  Maggots crawled and twisted as they ate their way through the birds’ stomachs, tearing a disrespectful course through their innards.  It was a sight to despise, and to hopefully forget.

I think I would like to know more about DEAD KENNEDYS.



My mind is still at Miranda’s house; I seem to have left it there last Thursday.

Later:

SO WHY AM I SO HAPPY WITH LIFE?!

BECAUSE IT’S BEAUTIFUL + WE SHOULD ALL TREASURE IT.
