The Battle

 

Greed and Hate took a walk one dawn

To see what they could see

Imagine their surprise that day

When they ran into me!

 

“Go away!” I said to them,

“Your presence here is wrong!”

They smiled that smile that said it all

That said: “we do belong”.

 

I held my ground and cried for help.

I called the best I could.

There was an answer to my plea.

And those that came were Good.

 

Compassion showed and Love as well,

But Tolerance led the charge.

Hope took part and Kindness too,

And Confidence was large.

 

It took us all together,

To banish those with Greed.

This battle fought is never done,

When Evil’s what you feed.

Oh the Horror!

 

There was an epic battle last night between the forces of Good and Evil.

Greed and Hatred led a coalition that appears to have decimated the followers of Tolerance and Compassion. Good Manners was seen to fall in the first volley. He was followed closely by his wife Good Taste. It is unclear whether or not their children Good Sense and Good Will were on the scene.

Despair was glimpsed on the battlefield but it is unclear where he eventually went.

It is difficult to know what went wrong and when. The how is less difficult to surmise. It takes the smallest step on a slippery slope to start a downward spiral. The first time someone is mistreated because they are different and it is not corrected, then we all become complicit. All of us.

Too many people hide from the truth believing it does not affect them. Others believe the lies fomented by the side of Evil. Still there are others who work tirelessly and without fanfare to right the wrongs brewing in our society. We need to bolster the side of Good, each and every one of us. A simple smile at a stranger can begin the process of inclusion. And when that smile is returned and then passed on, it can grow. One step in the right direction can get the ball rolling, gaining momentum. An individual can make a difference. Many individuals together can change the tide.

It is believed that Hope escaped the carnage and is in possession of the seedlings of Love and Compassion. If she truly did manage to save the young then perhaps our future is not so bleak.
