Camp Games

Werewolves, you unscathed bastards, open your eyes and decide who to kill.

At least I don’t have to wear the satin thing

If it’s me let it be drowned out by crickets



You have never been kind to meYou always pulled my hair.

I owe Tabitha nothing


Is some kind of cycle broken? Or have we just started again?
