The Little Boy

The abused becomes an abuser:


The little boy
That lives in the man
Is a bitter soul
Plagued by nightmares
Of playing on the edge of the jungle
Where poisoned bodies lay putrid and swollen
So many years ago

The little boy
Lives in a man
With a bitter soul
Plagued by memories
Of wandering the streets of London
Where no one wanted him around, abandoned
So many years ago

The little boy
Destroyed the man
With an evil soul
Plagued by demons
He cannot exorcise and cannot understand
So he beats the woman who loved him, blamed her
So many years ago

The little boy
Is a fetid, bloated man
With a shriveled spirit
Plagued by addiction
He cannot quit and refuses to admit
So he wallows in self-pity and denial
All the rest of his years
