We are the
Villains because we speak truths
While heroes are silent
Divided in groups.
Villains are lonely and solely inspired
By God and Universe
By Nature and machine.
No secret identity
Here is my face
Now hate it secretly
And smile when you see it.
Villain because I oppose in the open
While heroes repose in the comfort of masks.
I am the hated timely belated distant related
Vocally illustrated, ghetto Affiliated
Despot, negatively painted.
The villain whose smile is remembered by children
An outlaw of men; a villain civilian
Illegal alien chained in captivity
Along Lady Liberty
A heroic villain; look at me!
Communal slave in the land of free
Enterprise and capital gain
Born terrified in the home of the brave.
The True Patriot of a land taken
Of a land that was and remains non vacant.
A Villain Heroic among us is obvious
Beyond communist disdained by populous
Daunted taunted haunted unwanted
Because we speak truths
We are heroic villains.
