He hears a mournful cry
in the distance,
unaware that it comes from
his own lips.
Abandoned and all alone,
this reprobate wallows in excruciating memories.
Resignation washes over his malevolent soul,
as he bears his rightful retribution
for the atrocities perpetrated on countless others.
A once vibrant and aggressive man
is now resigned to a life of
passivity and withdrawal,
destined to spend his final days
locked inside a pernicious world
of demonic possession,
his just reward.
