The Score

You’ve have been sitting and watching!

Nothing else to do.

Sedentary without guilt or shame.

No need to feel blue.

You said you fear the bad men.

That terror in the heart.

They don’t fear your watchful eye.

Doesn’t faze or rip them apart.

He said, “The world does need these bad men.”

“Keeps other bad men from your door.”

Its the balance of light and darkness.

If indeed you’re keeping score.

No mention of the ladies?

There’s bad bitches too.

But you don’t see that coming.

That beauty blinds your view.

This tale is old and tested.

Desire is at the core.

If you don’t want something nice.

Then darkness wins the war.
