Poem of a Madman

Have you ever had a truly sinister thought?
Thoughts that have made you shiver?
I have them, more often than not
Like a messed up stream from a sadistic river

These thoughts make you pause and reflect,
Wondering if you are really that evil
Or maybe, possibly, it's a mistake, a defect
Because the first option is too inconceivable

Self control is one of the greatest gifts given to man;
It helps you cage the animal within
If we didn't have it, this world would be a desolate wasteland
And the air would be teeming with sin

Look into the mirror one day
And see what is truly hiding underneath
In the darkness of your eyes, a different you lies in wait
Just waiting and wanting to be released
