Isn't this the truth? I personally don't know if these people can be helped or not....but I'd not want to chance my child with one being rehabilitated. This is such a wonderfully, horrible poem....reminds me of that Sally Fields movie, 'An Eye for an Eye'....I was rooting for her to take him out...untouchable topic, that you've handled quite well....blessings....

Hi Dean,

I always enjoy reading your poems even though they're about many kinds of people I rarely think about. Still you are great at writing this kind of poetry
and I'm always ready and waiting to read them.

Kat

This is an important topic to write about to keep it in the forefront of people's minds. I do not believe there is any "cure" for child molesters, sooner or later they will do it again. Your piece is well written and rhymed, candid in expression. Well done. Marilyn

Hi Dean.
This is so good. You have captured and described the mind and deeds a the most sickening offenders of all. There should be no parole or pardon for these people.
A great read.

You are the master of internal rhyme, my friend. No one does it better than you do. This is a chilling tale regarding child abuse. I agree with you that it is the most horrible of sins

Good Morning, DeanO. You have a real gem here, my friend. You have covered the subject matter of child abuse extremely well with your poetic finesse and intelligence about the world around you.

I liked these lines in particular: ""Let's help them out," the pious shout, "they're worthy of forgiveness. Would they be proud to shout as loud if their child got the "business"?"

Bravo, my friend. Bob

Dean, you're right on the money here. The scariest "monsters" are child molesters. No, ghoul or vampire can top these "foul, fiendish freaks" in depravity. You put your exceptional talents to work to describe people who scare the bejesus out of us.

The only spag is that you need a possessive apostrophe for "devil's skin" in you last line.

Once again, thank you for sharing and caring. Congratulations on your well-deserved win for Poem of the Month. You wrote another fine one.

I had to turn the sound off. It scared my dachshund and he wouldn't stop barking. I still have sleeping men in my house. LOL

I can't say I enjoyed reading your poem because of the subject. As usual I can recognize the great poetic style you used.

Dean, in Minnesota, we had an Amber alert. Several of us got this notice on our new Apple cell phones. I prayed. It seems that a guy invited a friend over. The father put the beautiful joy filled girl to bed. The friend stole the girl out of the house. He then abused her and killed this five year old. This breaks my heart....it was a week ago. Police found her and locked him up. Minneapolis is where this happened. Amber alerts started in Texas. Good awareness, Dean.

I admire you for your awareness writing. Makes us think. flylikeaneagle

Wow what figures show and the truth comes out, but still it goes on...both sides of terror and the two versions of stories that makes it all okay.
And the unsuspection innocient are the ones that pay a price of disreguard. Somethings just cant be undone...or retaught.
