Evil Takes a Vacation

The Queen of Darkness had to take a break.
The war she’d fought for years against the light
weighed on her head and made her poor neck ache.
Her spine was stiff: abandoning the fight
never occurred to her.  But a nice flight
to Maui?  That was something she could do.
She mulled the tough decision overnight,
grabbed man and luggage, and was made anew.
Evil, my friends, appreciates the view.
Evil is not opposed to touring far
and wide.  Though it’s surprising, still it’s true:
evil takes pride in going under par
on an idyllic course.  However vile,
evil relaxes, too.  Look at that smile!
