Terminology inspired by Matt "Trollboy" Wiseman, possible contributions forthcoming, if I can convince him to publish his poem.

you say you know all about me
well you ought to since you studied
shoved your hands in the grinder
then complained when they got bloodied

now like a publicist paid
on a hate fueled motorcade
you tell the world i'm the monster

but i'm the monster that you made

i am the monster you made
born from the ashes of a child
too cold to be afraid

i am the monster you made

meticulously hand crafted
by abusers' scalpel blades

you're mortified by my laughter
yet you keep that squirting black rose
you fuck off all of your true friends
and replace them with the brown nose

and by merely noticing this
and declining judas kiss
you now decide i'm a monster

i'm the monster that you made

i am the monster you made
delusions trimmed like the gristle
from a heart quite young in jade

i am the monster you made

aware that life owes me nothing
but a grave where to be laid

so bring it on mr. badass
i'm too tired to try to fight you
your steps towards me burn your feet
well i am good at what bad i do

when makers try to get paid
the mines start being laid
you lose a leg --- i'm the monster

the monster that you made
