Left is Best – Persona Poem

The left hand only

For handling contraband

And anything unholy,

If you please –

It just keeps me at ease:

Sinistro,

Sinister,

Visitor,

Prisoner.

The right is for right-doing:

Things that save me from ruin:

Not for wiping the ejaculate from the mirror,

Not for stabbing myself with the scissors,

Certainly not for squeezing the life out of someone until they wither,

The right hand is not the hand of a killer.

Not for seventy percent of them who would have recommended

That for those responsible for a series of lives being ended,

Left is most definitely the best – they’ve put it to the test:

Sinistro,

Sinister,

Visitor,

Prisoner.
