[Throwback Thursday — originally published May 2013]

“Stabber’s reign of terror
ends,” bold and loud and dark
front-page worthy words announce,
boasting to the timid, frightened
audience that the system
has finally done its job.

It hasn’t.

They say he looks like the devil
in the picture next to the words — 
bold and loud and dark, and unremorseful.
They say he has low impulse-control.

He doesn’t.

I’m not quite sure how one horrible mistake
amounts to a reign of terror,
can’t quite understand how prescribed
narcotics effects equal the devil.
But the media doesn’t lie.

Does it?
