Knowing the Face of Evil

face of evil

Most people do not
recognize the face of evil.
They expect something ugly
a set of horns.

But evil can be handsome
or ordinary
for the ugliness of evil
is internal
a cancerous rot
that consumes
human decency.

Beware of smiling faces.

      Don’t get me started on McDonald and kindred stores that sell this false food full of everything bad for us. Like the metaphor of their clown. Never thought about the irony of this. hugs, pat

  5. Totally true. A true smile reaches the eyes. An evil smile shows deadness in the eyes.

    Pat, can we tell from their smiling faces? Some are trying to brighten others’ days with smiles. Is it wrong?

      No, of course not. It is just that there are those who smile but evil intent lurks behind that smile. On the other hand, a genuine smile is a loving gift to give everyone. hugs, pat
