It Seems

It seems we
need our monsters.
We watch them
on the show.
The sad part is
that’s not enough;
we even help
some grow.
One by one
we pick them
and drive them
slowly mad.
We tease them
and torment them
while they’re growing up.
This really is quite sad.
We act shocked
and horrified
at their
terrible crimes.
But did we not
incite them?
Whose was
the greater crime?
previous.                                                                                            next.
