Poem a Day: Monsters Walk

Monsters walk among us.
They look like you or me.
We can only watch our children
While they dance.
We can only watch ourselves
While we race through life.
Monsters walk among us.
Grendel, troll, Cain, Jack,
And they look like you or me.

In response to a post on someone’s blog about a child molester moving into the neighborhood.
