''Death Farm.''

''He had always had to struggle

against his boundless urge to kill.

He could kill animals, but it

couldn't give you the sublime thrill

that taking the life

of another human being could.

One day, he found that nursery rhyme

and his destiny would be fulfilled.''

l've killed lots of people...

but they'll never catch me.
