The Damned Circus Painted In Oil - Part 2, The Terror Twins

Augustina and Argenta such sweet little angels
Wings adorn their cherub backs
Black as night and stained thick red
To keep them aloft,
as they swing like the flying dead.

Their crime quite simple
But horrific all the same
They sit in this circle
Because of their rotted game.
Two little sisters sweet as bumblebees
Rotten to the core and barely as old
As a forgotten mongrel corpse full of flees.
Playful little children
Who stayed awake too long after dark
Caught sight of love and death on the computer screen
And felt something beat inside their heart.

But never did the twins feel that disturbed beat again
And never did they see the love and death
That burst open their heart, bringing desire for pain
Never again did their heart burst again,
not until…
their pure young brother
Ignorant from the innocence of his age
revealed to them what they never could see
The snake of sin, so innocent in it’s cage.

Augustina, so wrong in her mind
Lusted her brother.
Argenta, so simple in thought
Tempted by her sister to join in the game.
Grabbing and pulling, the boy shrank in fear
from the talons of his predators, horror in each tear
Screaming and laughing, the twins heard them clear,
the snap of his bones as blood red began to appear
Pouring from the cracks in his head saying
“life is not here”.

Terrified at the sodden ending of this monstrous game
The twins full of terror took the boy, shifting blame
ran to the hiding place their childhood had taught them
and hid the body beneath their mothers bed,
(Who only days ago went looking for the son
she left behind, tried for so long
but couldn’t forget.
Seeking forgiveness from the boy,
now she is dead)
and ran for the forest, looking like monsters of dread.

For days they hid,
sleeping in trees
Like nightmare nymphs.
Dreaming of the boy
Whose life was snuffed
With such ease,
Laughing with joy
Wanting to play the game again.
