Killing just to Kill

Long live the king, the king is dead
Assassin hides just to claim his head
From the shadows, as death befalls
A cowardly kill, though joy enthralls
No reasoning to exhaust his breath
Just the fun of bringing death

Killing just to feel like a man
Behold death within his hand

The joy of watching something die
The traits of a sick and twisted mind
Pride derived from taking a life
The darkest side of all mankind

Killing just to kill
Killing for the thrill

In the cityscape of sound and light
Crowd unaware of the sniper’s site
The bullets fly and bodies fall
The coward hides within a vantage, tall
No reasoning or point to fulfill
Just looking to sate the lust to kill
