They have left deep scars upon humanity…
Myriads of human spirits that cried out in agony
From shadowy places where nightmares
Became appalling realities!
Soulless, they ruthlessly destroyed …
Devoid of even the remotest hint
Of human decency and compassion,
Their empty, cruel hearts cold as ice!
Some of them small in stature,
All of them evil incarnate
They unleashed upon the earth
Unspeakable misery and profound fear!
Throughout the centuries they kept coming…
And one by one they gathered followers,
Armies to carry them into glory…
Sacrificial lambs for their massive egos!
It’s the future now, but nothing has changed
The charismatic despots keep on coming
Only now they’re far more adept at disguise!
They look just like you and me.
And most of the time we don’t even know…
When they’re standing right next to us!
