Treasure Island

MoonBee Canady

' Monsters, Among Us... '

Scatter The Creeping Vapor-Stench, Away
Expose The Wake of Eerie, Fog and Shadows
And Nightshade and Fiends, and Vile-Beasts That Bay
Begone, to Taboo, Grounds, Unhallowed …

… For There Are Monsters, Among Us …
Yea, Also An Ancient Curse
We Don’t have To Make This Up …
… to Make It Any Worse …

There Are Blood Suckers, Self-Styled, Vampires (Vlad, The Impaler)
Who’ll Drink Your Blood by Starless Night
Creatures, Who’ll Make You Suffer Their Desires
and Ghouls, Who’ll Dine On Your Flesh in Daylight (Jeffrey Dahmer)

Yea, There Are Creatures of The Dark
Who’ll Catch You, If You Do Not Know … (Rapists)
They Want To Get Inside Of Your Heart
And Make You Do Acts, Foul, Fraught with Woes

Yea, There Are Monsters, Among Us …
Merciless, Malevolent, Maniacal Monstrosities … (Hitler)
They Do, Indeed, Want To Own Your Soul, Because (Jim Jones)
They Want To Make You Commit Their Atrocities! (Charles Manson)

And If You Walk Around Unwary
Doesn’t Matter, If Its Not, Stroke Of Midnight
… Anytime, Is Their Time, To Do Scary
Spine-Chilling Screams of Your Unending, Pitch-Black Fright …

Rituals To Silver and Golden Idols
Making A Virgin Sacrifice - (Child Molestation)
Hexes and Voodoo Dolls
and All Such Abominations To The Christ …

… Now, by a Long Shot, I’m Not Pious
(‘Cause I Too, Like A Good Thrill!)
Just, Don’t Make The Mistake-Serious
By Thinking Wickedness, Isn’t Real!

And Humans, Please Be Aware
Evil Incarnate, Isn’t Just A Movie Theme …
It’s More Than Just A Joking Scare
… There ‘ Is’ A Wicked Scheme

(and There ‘Is’ A Wicked Being)

So, If You Find, You’re Chased or Caught
By Some Monster In A Living-Nightmare
Remember, No Potion, Amulet, Nor Incantation Taught
Brings Almighty Help, Better Than Holy Prayer

Yea, There Are Monsters, Among Us …
Yea … Also, An Ancient Curse
(and We Couldn’t Even Invent The Stuff
to Make It Any Worse!) …

    Thanks for reading this one Elena... It seemed to bring out the introspective in you (smile) ... and as for the question - what makes people 'monsters' is a simple answer ' Choice ' Everybody, whether they've had bad upbringing, a product of their environment or their way of thinking... has to make a Choice on what they do in life... (there is no excuse to take someone's life without lawful authority) ... I had already posted a poem dealing with this topic... Its called 'The Madness of A Murderer'... You might enjoy reading it and I assure you that if anyone who was a victim could talk, or the loved ones left behind, will agree with the term 'Monsters'... Our Hearts must change before the World Can Change... Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts - I appreciate them truly... MoonBee (Report) Reply

    Sometimes I wonder what makes those people- so called 'monsters'? Once, they all were lovely creatures(babies) at some point..what changed them? What did they sought? We find the answer, and that could change the world..(*_*) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
