APED: "lar domesticus"

Today I killed twice. I'll do it again.
It's such a delight to maim and to rend.
The soft flesh gives way. The bones come apart.
How sweet the blood tastes! The best bit's the heart.
You saw what I'd wrought. I marked well your screams.
Keep that in your thoughts. Keep that in your dreams.
Fear, love, venerate me. For I am your god.
My fierceness my staff. My cruelty my rod.
So do what I say. And do it right now.
Change my box. Pet me. And feed me. Meow.
