Always Be There A Monster

Always Be There A Monster

A Poem by Darien Don

We always such for monsters that go bump in the night. The real monsters are staring you in the face.


Monster, monster 

Listen to me 

What you do is evil indeed 

You rule over people 

You take everything they have 

We know you hold no remorse 

No regret for your actions 

Monster, monster 

We trusted you 

To lead the people 

To be good 

Once given the chance 

You turned on us 

Now we will turn on you 

Monster, monster 

Here I am  

Leading your people 

Leading them to take you down 

You can run 

You can hide 

Know that you I’ll always find 

Monster, monster 

You are at my feet 

Begging for your life 

Pleading for mercy 

Begging is too late 

Pleading is irrelevant 

I strike you down without kindness 

Monster, monster 

You have no last words 

No good-byes 

All you give me is a smile 

Then, you die 

I turn to see the people watching me 

His smile is not misplaced as I hear the people say 

“Monster, monster 

Listen to me.”
