Wooed and wedded with a devil's kiss 
the renegades are here, not blessed 
on any heaven's list nor bedded 
in the womb of common decency. 

Men are bleeding, truth and beauty 
losing their validity. Legless, heartless, 
headless, mindless stark insanity. 

Humanity withers; people are reeling, 
dealing their brothers, stealing 
another look over their shoulders, 
trust but a fantasy, justice a dream.

    Another gem, dear Keith. I see them looking over their shoulders, waiting to get what they seem to deserve. love, Kathy
