Disney Knights

A generation spellbound by Disney knights        
And animations crowned to protect the light            
Told stories of medieval schemes, hooded witches and apple bites            
Taught the divide between good and evil is black and white            
              
As the fires stoked, they dream of conquering those frights           
Blinded by the smoke, they ask where to aim their sights            
Self-anointed heroes ordered to fire at spotlights            
Their pointed arrows plant the seeds of their children’s fight        
Generations of gasoline fed matches until they ignite            
               
They recite their lines before bed each night            
Only to be cast as referees in a rigged fight            
escapees dodging floodlights           
Seems the scales been tipped and the clock struck midnight      
Like we’re all extras in a script given no narration rights
