Here is an observation about yesterday's news.
Popular fiction is filled with stories
about the attraction of an ingénue to a bad boy.
Maybe it awakens the madonna in her to heal his injured soul,
or the harlot who wants to express her wild side
perhaps she is the innocent, who will transform him
with her untarnished love.
Yes, a woman wants to tame the wild beast
…and then is hurt when he turns on her
she cries when he lies to her,
betrays her, then rips her heart out,
leaving her as carrion on life’s highway.
All I can say is, “Yep…he’s a bad boy.”
