COPLA TRES: This Bad Guy World

COPLA TRES (THREE):  This Bad Guy World
Bad guys signal to each other
In cryptic lingo and hand signs
Close ranks bind ties
Egg-white eyes of the murderer
Encroach the pupil with designs
Embryo dies
No worse enemy than the friend
Who feigns being a bosom pal:
Snake in the shoe
They know their role is to offend
Their lives but ephemeral
Do they yet rue
