You Ask Why

Suicide and homicide shade imperceptibly together.
There's precious little difference when you think
the world's what's killing you, and you've decided to strike back.
One cannot believe such darkness is inside one's skull.
It must be everywhere else: in the street and shopping malls.
Setting up barricades for protection is the first step
that ends in Masada.  To kill the killers
is an intent that always ends in the perfection
of logical suicide.  Your bafflement baffles me.
