Hidden Unpredictable MeNaCe
Linnac

It's a side of war
 1
you never see.
 2
It's the life you lead
 3
after casualty.
 4
In the midst of suffering
 5
and poverty.
 6
There lives unsmiling
 7
impersonal me.
 8
 
 
I prove wholly
 9
life isn't fair.
 10
I give some
 11
an unhealthy share.
 12
I can strip
 13
all love and care
 14
and everyday
 15
leave life bitter and bare.
 16
 
 
Sacrifice all
 17
and I'll give you none.
 18
Dry your tears
 19
and don't let them run.
 20
I am power more
 21
influential than the sun
 22
and all disaster
 23
I have done.
 24
 
 
Look not at talent
 25
in excess.
 26
There is no mercy
 27
that I possess.
 28
I do not care
 29
and I do not bless.
 30
All around you fear
 31
the day you meet Success.
