The Darkest Deed

written by: Anne G



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



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.

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
