Hopeless Heroes

I watch them fly away

My hopless heroes

The only ones I've ever known

Scortched capes torn to shreds trialing behind them


They don't go to save the day

They've lost too many times

There really is no reason for them to try

For there's almost nothing left to save


My hopeless heroes leave me

Abandoned in this fortress

Barely more formidable than cardboard

With a whole new batch of demons coming forth


They left me all they had

In their final farewell

So at least I have some chance to make it

Battered, bruised, and broken

But with a semblance of life still within me
