Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Whatever: ‘and why did you sing hallelujah if it means nothing to ya?’ -damien

is it god or the devil I should thank
for my lack or fill of courage,
no matter the outcome when it is what it is,
this
apologetic bout of promises
from the son of a vagabond
gone looking for what to undo
and with a heavy-handed promise to fix that, too,
sometimes I think god and the devil
aren’t all that different,
two sides of the same tin coin
with more worry reserved
it’ll bend or break than
land tails up too much
for Rosencrantz or Guildenstern,
but the real funny thing about courage
is how stupid it is
when we who are about to die
will salute no one.
