The Beast with Eyes Too Kind
In every city lives at least one beast.
He’s not like us, yet charmingly he smiles
and draws us to him with his eyes so kind.
And those that he befriends are mostly kind,
for they make easy prey for him, the beast,
who has no kindness in him as he smiles.
Too late his victims learn just why he smiles.
His eyes confronting them are not so kind
when they’ve discerned the nature of the beast.
Beware the beast who smiles with eyes too kind.
