The Sadism We Never Speak Of 

They sat across the room from me
Reading a daily
Discussing an article
A man had stabbed his wife
Following a spat
‘He should be hanged’
They said
‘He should be beheaded in public’
‘Drag the bastard with ropes through the streets’
‘Drop him in an acid pool and let him melt off’
‘Chop his balls off’
It was ridiculous listening to ‘civil’ people
Getting creative with their sadism
Makes me wonder
Is it the man who’s in the paper the one with a criminal mind

Or is it the ones who discuss ‘justice’?
