where do all the monsters go?
Where Do?

Where do all the monsters go when the war comes to an end?
They hide out in our houses warm and let their evils mend.

Where do all the monsters go when all the enemies are dead?
They sleep in rooms so dark and red and nestle in our beds.

Where do all the monsters go when children live and survive?
They hold our children close and near and polish off their knives.

Where do all the monsters hide after they rape and pillage and plunder?
They stand around like you and like me and also aghast with wonder.

Where do all the monsters go when skies turn from blue to red?
They get up and brush their teeth then sharpen their claws to be fed.

Where do all the monsters go with all they’ve done and said?
They creep into our dreams at night and live inside our heads.

Where do all the monsters go when their campaigns end in utter defeat?
They stand around and take money from you and imagine revenge is sweet.

Where do all the monsters go when the battle is brought to their door?
They wallow in cowardice shame and self pity and supplicate on the floor.

Where do all the monsters go when you no longer condone immorality?
They marry your children and poison their minds while they beckon immortality.
