Everything I wish to be...

A smooth criminal,
An unlawful snake.
No one sees him come,
No one sees him go.
Always in the shadows,
In the dark, how could they know?
To make this work,
He soothes the children
To make them hush.
Stalks their parents,
Kills them first,
Children always come last.
What’s wrong with him?
Not a thing,
I imagine he’s everything I wish to be.
What’s wrong with me?
