The Murderous Yogi

Here lies Montgomery “Monty” Carlson,
millionaire extraordinaire,
and a whore’s worst nightmare;
your friendly neighborhood serial killer,
one community’s tall, white pillar;
a carnal vegan,
a yoga instructor,
his body a great conductor
(for electricity)—
as evidenced through his death in the chair.
He went out in a blaze of glory,
turning his novel life
into a short story.
May he rest in pieces—
just like his victims.
