Jack's Rules (by: eddy styx)


Jack's Rules


licking the wounds

of the previous night's trials,

carrying my sins

in tiny glass vials


of frosted etching

I label in gold lettering,

feelings free

as such unfettering.


caring not for guilt

to slow me down

such things are meant

to make a man drown.


I am methodical

in planning and deed.

mankind must end,

so I've never planted a seed.


murder's my game

a perfect killing machine,

I work in the shadows

never to be seen.


so hide in the darkness

behind locked windows and doors.

from me you're not safe

for all women are whores!

    Oohh, why didn't he just have a nice of cocoa and a nice sleep, instead of going about killing people?!
    Erm, that's took the edge of the theme. No, Orchi, you missed the plot! lol.

      lol! thanks, Orchi!

      ever, eddy

      Is Eddy over his bout of influenza or wotever it was kept him off MPS.
      It looks like he used the away time to recoup and gain strength judging by the sins he's now carrying.
      Personally i'm staying outta the shadows. But were i a woman or whore, i wouldnt venture out of doors.

        ever, eddy
