The Great Fight

The “Great Fight” of good and evil
Is a fable born of darkness
A lie – to keep the noble caught
Enslaved by a righteous blindness

All ways of war are darkling spawn
The good has always been its Lord!
Those who fight, wrestle with shadows
Yet those who love, wage something more.

“Hasten, hasten!” comes the cry of-
Urgent need to vanquish evil.
But evil is who sings the song:
For fighting with it makes it strong.

Against the dark the noble stand:
A light, darkness can’t understand.
They know well that, to draw their sword…
Gives life to shadows, and to war.
