The Darker Side of Luck


Just Another Escapist

He knows you by your many names

It's nothing new, you've stayed the same

Protection, be it shield or mask

Will be undone, it is his task

The soldier's rifle cannot aim

The maiden pure is lost to shame

The royal family line will fail

The captain's ship no more will sail

The merchant's price will fall too low

The gypsy's crystal will not glow

Take care lest you become his task

You may be next, you need not ask
