He Smiles Insane Inside by Mikel K

I’ll keep you warm
step inside
my money’s breathing.
It will never die.
I see the prostitutes
on Christmas eve.
What will Santa bring them?
Houses line the horizon.
Inside everyone feels warm;
so good to be safe inside.
Outside there’s a knock.
Enter the serial killer.
He wears a pizza suit.
Thank you for the tip.
