Story of a Psychopath

These slick white walls capturing him,
Echo remorseless cries as if singing a hymn,
"Why psychopaths behave that way?" questions my psyche
Well, then let's enquire the Almighty.

Nine-year old Felix can't stand it anymore,
There's someone responsible for wounded mother on the floor,
He strikes his vertex carrying his empty fear,
They hide her late spouse in graveyard near.

The duo celebrate their first wedding annniversary,
Teen Felix and Xena are laughing, hysterically
Till their car crashes to a pine, it had a Mustang to avoid
Felix remained alive, but his heart had died.

A mid-aged lady shot to death in a mall,
A peer man found stabbed leaning against a wall,
Nobody but Felix was responsible for the foul play
Read the newspaper on an eerie gloomy day.

They come for him waiting in his cell,
Citizens awaiting outside, wishing him hell
"May God have mercy upon your soul"
A decade has passed, the hangman arrives to play his role.
