The Sociopath Grins - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis
Why is it you reject my invitation?
Don't you want to see me take a bride?
I would come without hesitation
If you were the groom and we switched sides.
Oh but that could never be
Replacing the likes of you for me.
I for one could never marry.
If I had no moral compass bearing.
Caring for anybody else but me.
Sharing a bed with any two or three.
Romping in hedonistic ecstasy
Why not save her from your treachery?
Why make a mockery of the wedding bliss
The vows laced with lies are your scam.
Is she so far lost to your venomous kiss.
The smiling snake devouring all he can.
The wedding bells will ring out her end.
The veil will drop as her nightmare begins.
She may never trust another soul again.
The sociopath grins, oblivious to his sins.
Yes of course at last it came to pass
Before a years anniversary to mark that day
He had set out to mow far greener grass.
Without hesitation he went on his way.
