social animal


my kindness is a red herring

for tentacles ensnaring

you’re caught in my grip

my sweet words and quick wit


long pink tongues for licking boots

polishing my attributes

to an almost mirror shine

i will wine and dine


you, ready to eat you whole

do give me a part of your soul

i'm hiding my ugly innards

act the saints to all the sinners


fairest of maiden, noblest of gent

first to fall victim to my sweet scent

ever shapeshifting monsters

but the cracks make you ponder


my ultimate form, reader

isn’t a flailing shrieking horror

but any normal person

somehow that makes the truth worsen
