In the shadows I lurk,
who knows what evil lives
in these hearts. I cannot hide
my dismay at the mind
of a mankind that perpetrates
and preys on the lesser lights.
They are left in the darkness
of their souls; in the shadows.
My identity keeps me cloaked
and this shroud I carry coolly.
I can see from here that
I can strike fear in the wayward
and protect those who need protecting.
I Live by these simple truths:
“The weed of crime bears bitter fruit.
Crime does not pay” that’s what I always say!
“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts
of men? The Shadow knows!”
