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  
in the war zone knowing
they should fight  
with every ounce of one's might  
for the side they know is  
left or right 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    
biting the hand that feeds himself  
cannibalizing minions gone rogue  
off the reservation  
Self preservation is everyone
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
