A Hero's Duty

By Ersatz Sobriquet

A thousand generations and a thousand lives
A million stories and a million tales.
The and, ifs and why's
Push on as strong as mighty gales.

The future, some say they know
What will happen to them, and the outcome of things.
Who could predict, though
The evil one person could bring?

The heroes are those who are thought to chose their position
That is to be heroes, and save all that is just.
But, the truth is to think that is to have a kind of twisted vision.
They do it, not for glory, but because they must.

And though the evil should win,
Sometimes, the good guys comes in first.
To have the evil pay for all it's sins,
And for those who long for relief, to quench their thirst.
