Start to End to Start

We begin with the end.
The villain won the day.
Our hero could not help us.
He did not find a way
To save what needed saving
And now the foul shall stay.

We’ve lost many things.
So it is.  So it goes.
But here we are still.
Evil rules, yet it knows
That we are not gone and
The good inside us grows.

We’ve met wicked many times.
We always play our part.
Many meetings are ahead.
More than strong or smart
We believe in good so
We end with the start.
