By Torchlight The Lesser Evils schemed,Chitter-planned throughout the night,‘Let’s call us forth a greater Evil;‘We’ll invoke Compassion’s Blight!’‘Then after all our enemies‘Are stomped into the earth,‘In the afterglow of madness,‘We will then re-confer.’ ‘We’ll lock away the greater One,‘Back in their polished cage;‘When there’s no one left to question us,‘We can finally turn the page.’And […]
