Villain in cape of black
slipping through dark of night
hooded eyes peer about
searching for a dark somewhere

evil he would have afoot
dark deeds in deep of night
perhaps a damsel to abduct
carrying screaming to his lair

heroes he would undo
trapping them in his snare
as they seek the damsel fair
their noble quest he would foil

yet there is no place for him
no stories where he could fit in
only goodness is about
no place for evil can be found

slipping off into the night
darkness does he gather around
in the shadows he does await
for a chance to evil do
