MANY masks i have seen
and a few i have known
but the most diabolical
are not masks of evil
nor the grotesque
but the innocent faces
which hide behind
the truest of evil
: the sociopath
Terrible, I assume you know your name.
Mister Terrible, the cloth of worn souls,
and shoes like holes without space beneath.
My assumption — which I have only paid by
pain and sorrow; you think beauty when
others mention you. And nature, ah! A
balanced blade upon scales, slicing life
by the kilogram, cleaving hearts and leaving
the best of life upon the table of sorrow!
Depart! Leave me and your day along with you!
