protector of children

satisfaction written
all over her face
as she took a photo
of the dancing flames

the eye will watch him
now and forever
he would never again be able
to harm children
without a cost being
extracted from his soul

over lifetimes
he will learn
but for now
setting his front door
on fire
will scare him

and that feels good to her
although it probably shouldn’t
