The Game Of Good And Evil

The Necessity Of Contrast

Am I just an automaton or am I real
To myself and all others? Alive I must be.
We are sensitive creatures. Inside human skin
Have evolved things called values. We invented sin
To make for wild adventure. No passivity
Do I have about being. I am the real deal.

So, the two sets of values – the bad and the good –
Have it out with each other continually.
If they were equally balanced the game would be
Not an interesting one. No apology
Do we get for how things are… and they are beastly
Whether or not the conundrum is understood.

Every group of nice people needs those that are mean
Otherwise they could not tell each other apart.
They must then be recognized as the enemy.
But is this kind of behavior necessary?
There are many negative engines to restart.
Let them not play a part in the drama machine.

The best situation is where the good side wins
All the time but is never in fact the winner
And where the evil forces are always losing
But are never the loser. We have everything
That we need though it is harsh on the beginner.
Going through the cycle, we atone for our sins.
