Prompt: Hammer

The Hammer

The hardest thing is not killing them whenever you walk down the street. Rationally, I know I can kill more of the animals if I kill one every month or so, hide the body somewhere new, than if I were to start taking them in public and get arrested. But it’s slow, and there are so many of them.

I shouldn’t brag, but I’m great at it. Manson, Berkowitz, Ridgeway – they’re pikers. Get in a rut, get caught. That’s why I find a new way each time.

It’s not hard. When you’re surrounded by nails, every tool becomes a hammer.
