SUMMERTIME

 

As the heat starts to rise, the devil’s plot thickens

Jobs become burdens, like bills

Cheating becomes second nature to husbands, like breathing

Emptiness quickly overtakes the wives heart, like a plague

Children swiftly invent deceitful plans, like thieves

Diamonds become tainted with blood, like knives

 

As time for leisure increases, the evil one’s campaign begins

Like a hunter, he searches for those who are weak

Like an animal, he preys on those asleep

Like a coach, he recruits those who will join his team

Like a professor, he infiltrates the minds of those who will take heed

Like a scorned lover, he plots revenge like no other

 

As vacations approach an inevitable end, the deceiver plants seeds that produce death

Schools, like prisons, become a capstone for terrorists

Churches, like mines, explode leaving those designed for inhabitance destitute

Trunks, like trenches, are used as a haven for snipers

Airplanes, like missiles, are launched as weapons of war

Parents, like pedophiles, betray their children

 

When will the summertime end?
