low grass

by Dylan McGee, ’26
Kai Craddock, ’24


there will always be one above 

and one below

the low grass can rise

but the high can too

our cursed bread is only 

cursed to few

for to the others,

it’s trash and won’t be their demise.

Prometheus was punished

for his gift to mankind,

for his love,

for his love was too strong to restrain

and that fire could deftly

burn those flowers

that grow where they know

they cannot be obtained


in our mellow heaven

a diminished chord plays

as the leaves fall from 

unimaginable heights 

and as those leaves fall,

released is more light

allowing you to hear

their cries and their calls.

the irresolution of revolution 

keeps the world turning and 

keeps the world burning

like lipstick on a pig,

we stick out like pimples 

on this barren land that

used to be made for us
