I lay beaten and bloodied,
On the cold floor of this world,
Provoked by human bigotry,
Riposted by human lies,
Cut open by human greed,
Mankind struck me down.

We were warned to be vigilant,
To protect our families from the dark,
Evil lay just out of sight,
Danger peeked around corners,
Here there be monsters they told us,
Simple misdirection.

The true monsters grow no claws nor fangs,
They stand shoulder to shoulder with you,
They wear the same suits and eat from the same troughs,
No demons are coming from the dark,
Humanity is already here,
Evil has already won.

    Appropriately gloomy. “The true monsters grow no claws nor fangs, They stand shoulder to shoulder with you,” is shudder-worthy.

    A hatter gotta hate….good one. The ending sentence was perfect to finish this poem “Humanity is already here, Evil has already won”
