Sonething I have been waiting to tell you…

Killer’s Delight


I am a murderer!

I now admit my guilt.

I enjoyed watching

Them die in agony.


It was fascinating

Setting the victims up

I was so careful, meticulous,

They did not realize.


No one suspects me, nor knows

I got such obscene pleasure.

No one would ever guess

That my gentle face hides such passion.


It was so simple!

I did not imagine

Anything quite so easy

Would cause their demise.


I observed them for weeks

Trying to formulate

A plan that would work

Causing their extermination.


The crime was so good

Even the best investigators

Could not find a clue.

It was environmentally friendly.


I only spread grits

On top of their red beds.

They ingested the food gratefully

And their small bodies bloated, exploded.


They fed their enthroned queen

And in a matter of a few days

I went out to take a look

An there were no fire ants.

    Whew! …but then again, I\’ve been a cereal killer, knocking off a bowl of flakes each morning….

    I was so surprised to find this poem again RH, I thought it was lost with some that are gone forever. Sounds like I might have had you there. A few people who really never cared for poetry have told me this is their favorite of what I have done because it is such a twister.Smiles,Jo Ann
