The Darkest Deed

The Darkest Deed

The darkest deed
our hearts did bleed

A child’s life
snuffed in the night

Innocence dead
the monster fed

Unquenchable urge
sadistic purge

No end in sight
society’s plight

The predator preys
humanity frayed

Danger lurks near
trust trumps fear

Warnings ignored
cynical lore

Evil intent
horizon event

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Inspired by reality …

The Darkest Deed – the murder of an innocent child by the least likely suspect, a family member and the deadliest of emotions, envy.
