Friend or Foe?

Friend or Foe?

The stark, dark chasm
beneath the shadows
of urban streets,
quietly insatiable,
is the entrance
to the pits of hell,
cancerous rot,
ever-growing, spreading filth
poisoning paradise
in the mortal struggle
good and evil.

Now listen hard
and listen good:
go to the city,
the city upon a hill,
walk the night,
walk the streets
from wall to wall
to wall to wall
to wall,
then go to
any wooded glen
and sit a while.

Then tell me,
tell me true,
good or evil,
which side are you?
