    We are good upstanding citizens
    Sometimes paying taxes
    Volunteering for the less fortunate
    We are caring people
    Doing our best to serve mankind

    We hold jobs
    Help our neighbors
    Serve on boards
    Stand in pulpits
    We sometimes look like everyone else

    Many call us their friends
    Would vote us citizen of the year
    Flaws could only be seen if you look beyond cover
    Open closets, unlock basements
    Or just walk into our living rooms

    We hide the dumb stuff
    Things that would make you turn away
    Like things done to our children, neighbors and strangers
    We have a need to be admired for our strengths
    Believe me we do have many and the reason you like us

    Our stories are simple and complex
    Sometimes we were victims
    Other times we have a warped sense of reality
    Our urges are out of wack and we just never sought help
    Before the first victim or after and wonder if there is a cure

    You see it is addiction and fiction and abuse of power
    The list is long of the things we endeavored to change
    Instead we fed the beast of our lust and broken needs
    Making right and wrong fall off the scale
    Feeding addictions plenty and wearing the mask

    You see we are really good guys … You can tell by all our outstanding deeds
    If you would take the time to stop listening to the testimony of our children
    Realize the good we also did for those we abducted or slaughtered
    Even you would begin to wonder what is right and what is wrong
    It is at those times all of us ask you to remember forgiveness and the things programmed
