The Protectors

Lilith and Lamia lounging in
Their lime green lair
Deep underground
After saving children
Wherever they could

In a land of child sacrifice
Not on altar, not by knife
But in classroom, by bullet
Fast and automatic

The children’s blood
Guarantees freedom
It’s worth the sacrifice
So many say

But Lillith and Lamia
Do what they can
Befuddling gunmen
Hiding children
Keeping them safe

After callisthenics
And a stretch or two
Maybe green Midori cocktail
They go back above
To see what they can do
