Favorite Quote:
You, he who subdued me, be not insolent, forget not the beauty of virtue.

Keeping life interesting.
Making a random bee sting.
“Bring me back my sanity,
You are a thief.”
Taking a society,
Putting it into Turmoil.
Teaching children,
To not trust.
Raising a spouse’s empty lust.

Telling a tale,
Not yet spun.
Making a train wreck,
And calling it fun.
Everything to see,
Not enough time.
If only we could stay
in our prime.

Owls hoot warning,
At the sound of your footsteps.
Telling an innocent mind,
That it shouldn’t be that way.
That’s the kind of society,
You’ve built for us today.
Never satisfied,
Wanting more and more,
Chaos reins in a world,
Ruled by you.

Never telling one that she’s okay,
You tell her that die,
She may.
You shove into our hearts.
When you put the poison
In one of grandma’s raspberry tarts.
Then snickering,
Then laughing full heartily.
As life doesn’t pass us easily.

It seems like the bad days are long,
As the good ones are short.
You watch it,
Laying back,
From your personal resort.
You were there,
Coaxing Romeo and Juliet’s hands.
Telling them to die
For their forbidden romance.

You come to sit in the room,
Little Suzie falls,
Breaking her spinal cord.
Dying within seconds,
Not even time to react,
To call the paramedics,
Not even dial the phone.

Singing to horror
“Come to life,
“Come cheer on
“That little boy’s fight.
“Take that boy
“and throw his head;
“Throw his head
“on the cement step.”

Corruption, you brought
This upon us.
You took a peaceful world,
And shamed goodness into hiding.
Taking a child’s hand,
And throwing him off of a bridge.
Anything to excite you,
Anything to thrill,
Anything to stir up a shrill.
That’s what you do.
That’s what your name implies.
You corrupt things,
That’s why your name is:
