Touch of Evil

A bully is a bully
no matter what their size or age.

He towers over his victim
to threaten and intimidate.
Even in black and white
the colour of fear is the same.

Is he saint or sinner?

He would claim he is just
doing his job
but then, so would
Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot
to name but a few.

Maybe they have that
one streak which would seem
most highly believable
maybe they all have in common
a touch of evil.

A hint of sweet Jasmine carried in the
softest whistle of wind through an open window
as sunset settled across her enchanted domain.

She could relax once again
after more than ample help from her
loyal and loving tiger beast
the scrap of demons were trapped
(for now)
in a magical montage of granite
(in theory)
would hold them forever, unless
the hard-stone was somehow flawed
or, the spell she cast was broken.

Such huge responsibility
being a good fairy queen
and trying to prevent so
many different monsters each night from
invading young children’s dreams.
