It was all just fun and games
He would dance


they did the same
He'd jump from the porch




and they'd follow along
He'd let out a loud whistle





and there was a harmony of supporting voices following along
It was all just fun and games
He told them to blame




They blamed those who made them fail
He told them to hate




Their hate was as scorching as a fiery pit
He told them to scorn




And their eyes of hate and rage looked down on them, innocent, childlike,
Then he slaughtered
He slaughtered them,
haughtily,
with no emotion
He laughed
then killed
Laughed
then killed
Men
Women

Children
Years

Years


Years



and



years




and they still followed
Their eyes and their minds as hollow as the universe.
