The Emerald Knight

Darren Cole – Deakin University

When the Green Lantern comes, it is time to rejoice,

Your pains will fade in the light of the green,

And all of your hopes will turn blue.

For when the Green Lantern comes,

No evil shall escape their sight.

From Oa they come, one light per sector,

Some planets never see the Green,

Others, constantly.

For when the Green Lantern comes

You will overcome fear.

When the Green Lantern comes

You will find peace.
