Bully



At eight he tortured small animals for fun,
A life of causing others pain just begun.

At 15 he beat up other boys for lunch money,
Or sometimes just because he thought it was
real funny.

He was Epstein; his dad said, my son the
doctor.
He cheated whenever he could fool the
proctor.

He became an abortionist: killing babies
paid well,
Until somebody shot him, sending him straight
into Hell.
