A brave little warrior headed into battle
to face the evil scum.
“Your skin will rend and your bones will rattle,”
they said, “and you shall surely succumb!”
But he didn’t falter, he didn’t prattle;
he knew why he had come!
He grabbed his lantern by the handle,
with no need for sword or gun.
The light he carried in hand and heart then shone and dazzled,
driving the evil back from where it had come!
