No.2 in the McArb series. (Don't take this series of serial-killer poems seriously, just take them serially!)


Just as there are creatures that should not be poked,

So are there words that should not be spoke.

For to do so would reveal the dark side

Of the human heart we all fight to hide.

Should you confess to any perversion,

You'll be searching for a quick diversion

To take the listener's mind away

From those deviant thoughts you just had to say.

But what if, when you thus admit,

You reveal, in your listener, a kindred spirit?

To share with them your darkest thoughts,

And they, with you, their own,

Risks recrimination and exposure

Of the life you've come to know.

Would you feel the need to take a chance,

And share your private aberrance?

For, not only could two be more fun,

But more easily get those dealings done

That, of necessity, must be prepared,

Before the pleasures can be shared.

Oh! And the feigned, mutual penitence,

[And an extra hand to hide the evidence!]

And, should each crave a different version,

Of basically the same perversion,

Would one deign to defer

To the other's pleasure du jour?

Or would a fatal rift ensue

And tear apart this club of two?

Would the benefits outweigh

The freedoms you must give away?

And could you keep complete control

And assign to the other a minor role?

Or bite your tongue, and seethe and fester,

As the other one becomes your master?

Many hands make light work,

But could you trust a partner?

Don't be treated like a sucker.

Safer to just kill the fucker!
