The only power wielded by the lost –
is their ability
to deflect, distract and conquer.
They thrive in the forests
of chaos –
that infinite source of sustenance.
The devil will never show you his/her horns –
they will show you their teeth –
they lead with a smile
into a false sense of complacency.
And that is the vantage point –
they will wage their assault
on your shores
that no one is manning the lighthouse.
