Poem: Serial Killers look like Sheep

Jaroslav Devia unsplash.com

1)

They pretend to be lambs

shy sheepish sweet

showing no glimpse

of the demon in disguise

hiding like an imp

waiting to strike

consume and devour

coyly return

with the smiling face of a flower.

They’re predators in camouflage

with 20/20 vision in nerdy spectacles

pretending impotency

invalidness and sunken chest

no one would ever guess

the Hannibal Lechter inside.

2)

Ted Bundy’s eyes

went cauldron black

right before he’d attack.

Alien demon-serpent-like surprise

full of wicked lies

wearing geeky lawyer bow ties.

Often he pretended he was hurt

with his arm in a sling

with an iron crowbar waiting

Good people can’t conceive of evil

their kind hearts are too naive to imagine torture.

Stranger danger Jack the Ripper serial killers.

Drugs let demons in like a portal

stealing mind body and soul.

3)

Celebrities are elaborate shells

that house psychotic alter egos

or maybe they’re cloned

as breathing soulless robot slaves

made to order literally

as living mannequin droids?

4)

But I believe

Good people will eventually win

because their pure hearts

are free of criminal sin.

Good people don’t have to be perfect

they just have to care about life

and try to help, not hurt others, that’s all.

Goodness is natural, authentic

unselfconscious and true.

Ego is fear of not being, or ever having enough

artificial phoney acting lies.

Elites overcompensate with narcissism

Racing through speed bump bodies of victims

people are only obstacles to them.

Narcissism isn’t self-love

it’s a one person planet of ME.

5)

Antiheroes from books are a fantasy not reality

Murderers will hate and rape you

no matter how nice you are to them.

Stay away from devils

Loving them won’t change

the emptiness inside

They’ll attack you for no reason

they take pride in it

hurting others is their pleasure.

Don’t try to heal them it’s not up to you.

Just do your best to resonate with the good.

I’m starting to think

to a certain extent

The Matrix and They Live

were documentaries.

    1. I used to be “too nice” tried to help disturbed people but there’s a phrase to “not fight with demons lest you become one” (my intention to help was disastrous). I haven’t yet read Dostoevsky but I’m always thinking I should.

    So true. Love this poem. i really like the bit about Ted Bundy’s eyes too. He would also have a really foul, rotting smell coming from him when his eyes turned black. I pray for these people (not Ted) and keep thinking there is hope for them, that they are not as bad as I, and other people think they are…etc. I can’t comprehend the evil sometimes. Psychopaths are careful to show themselves as benign, harmless and of course, charming.

    1. I didn’t know about the embodiment of evil smell, that makes sense, death is disease, it’s foul and anti-life. I think he was probably possessed. I’ve heard the same black eyed description about other killers too, it’s as if they were channeling evil, no excuse but it explains the depravity. I was afraid of him when I was a child because my sister warned me about him and made me read a biography about him. Serial killers seem like an aspect of the 70s, horrific as it sounds.

      1. I think it’s a form of Stockholm syndrome how some women had crushes on Bundy, one even married him and had a child with him while he was in prison. Serial killers were “in fashion” then and I think still. The pandemics are very depressing me, people are mistrustful of each other now because of the fear.
