Short Circuited To Ignite
Those heartless to be hotwired,
And short-circuited to ignite enduring pain...
With an objective upon others to inflict and sustain,
Believe for themselves there is benefit from it gained...
Have not yet met guilt awaiting and coming to connect.
And when guilt connects with a purpose that affects,
A mental illness unexpected spreads selectively...
In their minds...like a plague...and, not done randomly!
To do without a cure to prevent the reliving of evils done.
As their souls are made to review tortured horrors eternally.
'For all of you just arriving,
You may think the heat and repeated images...
As a living hell. However...for us? It's just another day.
You will get use to the screaming this is a given,
Since all of you will come to do it sooner or later. Any questions? '
