Day 3: Justice.

I know from television 
that people waver. 
Loyalty is an average. 
So let’s make a deal.

Serve me, 
and I’ll pay you an honest wage. 
I can read your mind,
but not your credit card number.

It’s true what I say
about evil empires.
They can be built on the bedrock 
of a single instance of trust.

Besides, equal parts 
gasoline and spark 
are not required to create
an excess of murderous fire.

We two need only be greater 
than an army of halves and zeroes.
Even a big One, with cape and mask
is no match for treacheries.
