The Guy Across the Street from the Beast

The rat pope raises paw
makes the sign of the cross
blessing the faithful masses
loyally attendant
assemble at his call
their minds his whim to alter
little sacrifices
to his vast ego made
reason in a snare slaughtered
into the trap they go
believing in the cheese
their necks for his pleasure snap
dying for their master
will they find peace in death
will those they leave behind learn
the dangers of sweet words
the threats of poisoned bait
or will their mistakes repeat
