The Crime Hierarchy (A Dark Collection)

This is one of the dark poetry which I wrote as a writing exercise. Dark poetry is not my usual genre. I had fun writing it.

the rambunctious head of the household
submissive yet overbearing advocate
dependents running wild
in the confine of farming life

leather face old man that hunts with a rifle
she runs over little lambs for feast
children grew up witnessing these normalities

one of the children
was convicted of second degree murder
the noise of the struggle
screaming, screeching, pleading
he had to bring them to silence

when you apply the transitive logic
it all makes sense

    1. I intended to mean the parents’ role modelling behviour influenced their children in a negative way. The farther was a trigger happy, the mother killed farm animal for food without care. When children were exposed to and grew up in such environment, there might be poor outcomes. “Transitive – the quality of a relationship among elements such that the relationship transfers across those elements.”
