They swagger with that borrowed power from the hill
Their menacing shadows are fierce like monstrous fangs
And they chase hapless souls who put their hopes in baskets
Who learn to befriend secret corners and blend with the crowds
Lest they fall prey to these vicious beasts bestowed with
Merciless badges and arrogant sneers.
This city has its version of mercenary minions
Unleashed to beat up and murder simple honest lives.
