 Elsie`s Poetry



"Oh! Hello there and how are you today
The weather`s not much good" you hear them say,
Ordinary people who seem nice enough
But underneath they could be callous and rough.

A wolf in sheep`s clothing you may well say
`Cause beneath it all a devil may lay,
On the surface they seem pleasant and nice
But their loved ones they may pay the true price.

A wife beater, abuser or even a drunk
A junkie, terrorist but certainly no monk,
They`re clever they hide whatever they do
Like Jekyll and Hyde and nobody knew.

A facade of faces is what we see
We don`t know what they really could be,
But until they show their cracks and flaws
We don`t know what goes on behind closed doors.
