Shackled

It began in the back rooms
a small deal here and there
men
women 
bathed in blood 
unafraid
unconcerned about what they have done.
One hired a Hitman
to take out a rival.
One leaked information
that took down a Corporation.
One methodically hunted
and thinned
his Partner’s wives 
until they all gave in.
Evil in genius
horrors in morals
all it took was one small word.
An investigation begun
wire taps
hidden cameras
an informant 
the damage was done.
Taken away in shackles
lead to jail straight away
the nightmare only really begins
when all the guards go away.
