Through Their Eyes

Pressed firmly a shoulder against brick wall Arms that are folded and feeling quite tall A hurly burly of a lazy man Only works if he has to or can Frustrated waiting for the big check Drank the last one quickly red neck They only come once upon time Delusional angry and outside so I'm In and out my mind does wonder Try to control the other guy under No money for meds and mad hatter is he Unpredictable this matter will be Hoisting two sacks the postman will meet But which one of us uncertain the greet Passing me by with no check in hand Off the stoop on postman he land Franticly struggling to loosen the strap Harder and tighter the handle did rap Doesn't take long the postman is limp It's back to me the original wimp I don't understand the reason for action This guy was good during every transaction You'll never know by meeting us guys But we'll see you through these killer eyes

Hi Kent, You have penned a well written dark write. This write allows the reader to see into the mind of killer. It depicts what they are thinking step by step . Great job in having the last line be the same as the title. Good luck in contest-Alexis
