“Puppet master” by Genre Pretorius

Genre Pretorius - 2011-11-09



Puppet master

You’ve been a puppet master for years
Luring people into your death trap
You would simply pull on their strings
And they would all come running

When you were done with them
You’d simply throw them away
And so comes the next one
Running to you day after day

People thought your puppets were insane
Not knowing you were the one to blame
You seduced them with your smile,
Your words and your touch
Folie a deux you would say
Never caring quite much
It must be contagious
This insanity of theirs

As they lived their lives on your terms
Few were lucky enough to have escaped
The rest were simply trapped
In the cesspool of your life …
