The Persistence of Evil


Left to my own devices,
I am an engine of atrocity.

My idle fingers
Keep getting tangled in politics
And before I know it,
There’s been another genocide.

It’s not that I try,
It’s that I don’t,
And destruction
Follows in my wake.

I just can’t seem to kill time
Without committing crimes
Against the whole of humanity.

My wife tells me
That I should get a hobby
Before I accidentally fill
Any more mass graves.

I tell her
Maybe tomorrow.
