Power Play


I’m a sadist
in a masochistic land
You call me God,
you call me the Devil

Hurt me! Heal me!
Kill me! Spare me!
Nail me! Resurrect me!

Pain, your manna
Religion, your poison
All you need, all you demand

I hold out food, not to feed
But to induce insatiable hunger
the way you want

I am the provider,
the ultimate safety measure
Entertainment for your sole pleasure

*Based on an old 55-word story from my archives. Tell me if it’s an improvement.
