Some Men

Some Men

Some Men
don't belong
walking the
Earth
For
Depravity 
Has 
Infected 
the lifeline 
Of their
Souls

No 
Treatment 
No cure
No sentence 
Of purgatory 
Will cleanse 
Their spirit
Just an 
Eternal
Journey
to damnation
is the redemption 
for mankind

Liberal created
Appeals
Inmate services
And
Programs
Designed
To humanize 
The monsters
Are the continued 
Daggers of
Evil
Placed on the
victims
When
Quick
Finality
Would serve 
a better
Course

Some men
Don't belong
Walking 
The 
Earth
And 
Our empathy 
Should 
Be removed 
At their
Extraction

Hi Greg.....Great example using Ted Bundy's picture to represent one of many monsters out there.  Although I do not believe in the death penalty, feeling only God says He can render justice by death...but I do think they should never be let out of prison and made to think of what they have done until the day they die.  But, it seems most do not have a conscious to even believe they do wrong.  Thank God that there are much more honorable men who would protect women against such monsters, but they are always out there, new ones being born and the cycle continues.  Scary thought.  Thanks for sharing. xo ;)

Thanks Cheri . But I disagree with you about the death penalty.  There are plenty examples in the Bible that support the death penalty.  Some people are beyond redemption

AGREED.

and the money that goes into keeping them on death row
while their appeals are exhausted (which can span DECADES)
could be used for those who are victims of monsters.

i'd push the button in a heartbeat.

I have to agree as psychopaths and sociopaths have no conscious ...and to be honest, in the very worst cases, they deserve to die, the suffering caused to their victims and families doesn't bear thinking about....

Hello Greg...

If there's no true remorse and they would never be set free and though some are released and they laugh believing they got away with it with time served...

Time doesn't fix the head and if they spent anytime in Solitary Confinement they remain with the only thing they have and it's their thoughts...

They get placed on Death Row for years, fed, housed, they get a choice of their final meal that could be fit for a King...

Many victims last meal may have been a bowl of Cereal if they were lucky...

Maybe, a baby was able to be fed a bottle or fed from the Breast of the Mother...

They had no choice to live or die...

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...
