The Pedophile’s Valentine

Tasting the candy he shared with his lovely wife
Each wrapper unveiled, soul-shattering becomes apparent
Joy and laughter fill the room with family excitement
Handing flowers picked personally from the freshest of blooms.
Smiling ear to eardrum, she exchanges gifts
Rapidly ripping the wrappers off this surprise
A teddy bear bears gifts
This proud father feasts on his Valentines' chocolates
The family he chose ended up being the family that poisons
Dad stumbled through the house in an awkward motion
Sternly handed a letter from his first-born son, reading
You're dying and living...and in both ways, you "touched me"
