Rescuing a man from a burning house is hard.
but thinking about it is easy.
Being burned alive is bad.
Saving a life is good.
I'll give you no argument there.
Get your feet moving in the proper direction
Put fear for self aside.
You will be a hero, which,  of course,
you will deny.

But there are demons without exorcists.
Some say they are imagined, paranoid fancies.
Or they are really angels in disguize.
Or they are just part of reality.  What is is.
Some say we don't need Don Quixotes
tilting at windmills, i've said that myself.

Who will challenge the enemy disguised as friend,
living quietly in my neighbor's house-- in his mind,
In my mind?
