Mary Bell what the hell
at ten was inside your head?
To choke a little boy of 3
until he’s stone cold dead
And then to carve your name in him
the initials MB in his chest
Did you want everyone to know
that this work was your best?
I know your mother was a prostitute
and she did terrible things to you
And is she the one responsible
for making you into you?
Others have an even sadder tale
and are left with deep scars too
but others haven’t needed to kill
or do the things you do.
