The darkness of Evil  

moves into the Hood  
for opportunity sought  
in homes vacated by  
 
the light of Good  
 
Minding their own  
business, neighbors  
find themselves caught  
up in the war zone  
knowing they should  
 
fight  
 
with every ounce of one's might  
for the side they know is  
right or left of self centered  
 
When a Walking Dude  
is strolling up the street  
You should meet him head on  
greet him with open arms  
signaling his  
defeat  
 
For a Man in Black  
cannot rule long in any land  
always biting the hand that feeds himself  
cannibalizing minions gone rogue  
off the reservation  
 
Selfish are the actions  
taken in self preservation  
Everyone only out for themselves  
in final hours and acts of desperation  
 
So,  put your trust in that  
the Hand of God  
will deliver you from harm  
and have faith  
 
The Good need only  
stand
