This poem is based off of one of the best animes I've ever watched, and a form of tribute and acknowledgement to the "Crazy Killer Incestuous Vampire Twins," Hansel and Gretal. Those two children made me love the show even more. Even though they were murderers and extremely demented, I still felt horrible when the twins died. That arc in particular showed the me that life shouldn't be sugar coated and that this is how the world is for some people! That children can be the most destructive weapons when molded by monsters. That is what prompted this poem.
His will was for his sister
Hansel is what they called him
A cold blooded killer
Yet his own murder was still so grim
She wished to see the sky
For grey eyes to meet blue
The only one of her many dreams to come true
Gretal was her name
One of a pair of perished two
Who died with a smile as the bullet went through
They were murderers... demons
This young child and her brother
Lived and died by the gun
As ruthless as any other
So why then, did our hearts weep
When they met their demise?
Why then, did we cry
As finality closed their eyes?
It is because, as they drifted toward the world of midnight
A place deathly cold and devoid of all light
We realize that they'd never really gotten what they need
What they believed to be love was only greed
What they thought to be life was only a lie
And they never really lived, yet they still had to die
Hansel and Gretal, their lives stolen at birth
Forced into a life of blood, sex, hatred, and hurt
Hurled into a grave after 12 years on Earth
And sent off to the world of midnight
For anyone else who enjoyed this arc in Black Lagoon and/or was also infuriated by the story of Hansel and Gretal, please do tell me your thoughts on the death of the twins.
Also, I know that the true gender of the twins is unclear since we've seen them switch roles as brother and sister a few times. But it's easier to set a gender in this case, because they could be fraternal twins, identical male twins, or an identical set of females . . . that's much too confusing!
Reviews much appreciated!
