Knight Fall

Jason couldn’t stand it anymore

So many villains needing punched in the face

He was gonna take to the streets and give them what for

But he never really knew what it would take

He made a mask and makeshift armor in his garage

Waited for night to fall to go on patrol

The purse snatcher thought him a mirage

He knocked out the women took her bag so he could go

Jason gave chase after him through the park

Tackled him very hard down to the ground

The two men rolling and fighting in the dark

Until a sudden deafening sound

The robber got away that night

And Jason’s name was mentioned on the news

Not for being a hero who chose to fight

But for his life he had to lose

    A fine write Luke. Well, balancing this with my Christian faith hopefully, we hear in the UK a murderer of long ago has died. He mostly killed homeless young gay men. Good news - good riddance?! In a fire-and-brimstone type of saying: 'Oh well, the worms in hell have more festering food to feed on now!' Yet we're all sinners needing forgiveness. (Rant over!).

    i enjoyed reading this luke.. a sad thing when the hero loses his life...they should have displayed him as a hero

      Yes unfortunately it is sad, but the good guy doesn’t always win and I made an attempt to show that
      Thanks so mich
