“The real thing about evil,”
Said the Witch at the doorway,
“Isn’t any of what you said.
You figure out one side of it-
The human side say-
And the eternal side
Goes into shadow
Or vice versa.
It’s like the old saw,
What does a dragon look like in its shell?
No one can ever know for
Once you break the shell to see,
The dragon is no longer in the shell.
So, the nature of evil is to remain…
Secret…
