Lessons Learned the Hard Way

I’ve had numerous people trying to give me advice 
I don’t ever listen and I don’t always turn them down nice 

Sometimes I cuss and pretend that I know it all

When I do I have no one to blame when I trip and fall 
I was told not to run with that crowd, that they were up to no good

And my “homies” left me bleeding when I got knifed in the hood

Why did the guy cut me? Because no gringo was going date his sister

Who knew cholos could be racist. That a Latina dating a gringo was sinister 
I learned that lesson the hard way, I fell hard and hit the floor

I picked myself up and decided I wouldn’t do that any more

I should’ve listened but I didn’t. I have no one to blame 

I consider the pain just payment for playing the game
Walking down the aisles of a grocery store just grabbing a few items

I was told I wasn’t supposed to shop there but when do I ever listen

I go to the cashier and he says no Spanish, no welcome in the store

I reply ¿cuánto cuestas?, he said no gringos and pointed to the door
I was told not to be in that part of town after dark

But I’m a hard headed guy whose name is Mark 

Walking back to my car I heard, “ what you doing here white boy” 

Three black men approach me spitting out racial slurs and say I’m going be their toy 

I ignore the taunts and run past them catching punches as I go 

A bottle hit me in the back, why the hatred for a stranger I’ll never know 
I learned that lesson the hard way, I fell hard and hit the floor

I picked myself up and decided I wouldn’t do that any more

I should’ve listened but I didn’t. I have no one to blame 

I consider the pain just payment for playing the game
You may be wondering what these experiences taught me

One thing I learned is that racism isn’t whites only

That we need more love and less hate on this planet 

I learned that racists have no place in my life and are as useful as a gnat

I’m Not Your Hero

I’m not the hero that you think I am 
The persona I’m using is just a sham 

I don’t regret anything from my past 

When I was raising hell I had a blast 
I may be a calmer and slower to violence that doesn’t mean i like peace and silence 

I may even extend a helping hand 

But I will probably have an ulterior plan 
I may not smash buildings like King Kong

But the city is not where I belong

I’ve had fun leaving a path of destruction

If I’ve helped anyone it was with objection 
 

Sometimes the most dangerous devil 

Is the one who is quiet about his evil

I may not be out causing chaos and pain

That doesn’t mean I have a heroic vein  

The Final Battle

The Cenas dispatched the soldiers in the lobby with ease 
Some were left floating in air, others were turned into peas

The second wave was a little tougher with the SS having magical weapons 

They shot spells at the Cenas causing them to go in different directions 
Henry ran and hid in a closet while he collected his wits 

Bobby ran around giving soldiers cowlicks and zits 

Jack forged straight through the middle and took the stairs 

Jack defeated soldier after soldier even trapping some in their underwear 
Henry knew he couldn’t hide while his family fought 

So he came out and used every spell he was taught 

He cleared a path to Bobby and they stood back to back 

They thought they would never see the end of this attack 
Until the windows exploded and the other groups poured in 

The addition of the other groups gave hope that they would win 

Henry and Bobby joined Jack in his search for Hitler 

They searched rooms, closets, and finally entered a theater
As they began to search Hitler grabbed Bobby and put a gun to his head 

He told the others to step away or Bobby would be dead 

At that point the hotel burst into flames and Hitler dragged Bobby to a window

Hitler jumped out the window but before he did he pulled the trigger 
Bobby fell lifelessly to the ground as Jack rushed over 

Henry ran to the window but there was no sign of Hitler 

WTH definitely helped win the war but they couldn’t save everyone 

What happened to Hitler is still a mystery maybe to never be known
There was a rumor he moved to Britain and took the name Umbridge 

As for Jack and Henry they went back to Their lives and on their fridge

They keep a picture of Bobby so they always remember 

What it takes so that others may be free and don’t have to face horror
The End 

Battles One and Two

Abigail’s mission is not one of great telling but it was very important 
The destruction of the factory caused the collapse of the mountain 

Seeing Otto, Hansel began to flee but was quickly surrounded 

He jumped on his broom and lifted in the air but was quickly grounded
Seeing no option Hansel’s cowardice turned into violence 

He shouted Avada Kedavra killing a wizard and causing silence

This was an unforgivable curse and showed Hansel’s true colors

Otto vowed to avenge this new death with the others 
Their spells clashed in the street, sending magical sparks flying 

Muggles began to run, Hansel killed a few and started laughing 

Hansel and Otto were equally matched with no end in sight 

When Otto finally dropped his pride and asked for help in the fight 
Otto called to his group to lend him their wands and give him help

50 spells crashed down up Hansel and ended when he let out a yelp 

Otto walked over to a fallen Hansel and picked up his wand 

Hansel spat at Otto and said you are weak. Otto didn’t respond 
He just walked away from Hansel and all of his hate

Otto told his group to get Hansel and take him to the Ministry for his fate 

This was the last time anyone saw Otto or heard him speak 

Some say he took his own life, others say he retired. Hopefully he resolved his grief

Building An Army

For the next few months WTH freed Magicals from prison
Until one day one their numbers had significantly risen

They had amassed a small army and decided to end the war 

 Their problems, Hansel, the SS weapons and whatever else Hitler had in store
They decided the best plan of action was to split into three 

Otto and one group would go after Hansel and set others free 

Abigail would lead a group to destroy the magical weapons factory

Hitler and his personal guard would be for Jack, Henry and Bobby 
Otto took a group of Magicals and tracked Hansel down 

Hansel was hiding in a small muggle German town 

Otto’s group blocked every exit leaving Otto to engage Hansel 

This fight would be a historical magical battle 
Abigail spent weeks roughing up German soldiers and getting information 

She finally found the factory tucked away in mountain 

Abigail knew going inside would be certain death for her troops 

So she decided to blow it up from the attacking the roofs 
Jack, Henry and Bobby shared the last name of Cena

The Cena family knew that once inside it would be like fighting in an arena 

This worried Henry but excited Jack and Bobby 

They found the hotel of Hitler and kicked down the door entering the lobby

One Camp Down

The explosion was caused by the Wand Through the Heart (WTH)
They helped with Storming the Beaches of Normandy to start 

Now they were freeing Magicals from Concentration Camps 

 Magicals cheered for WTH like they were champs
Otto was not pleased when they showed up because they ruined his plan

But his scowl went away when Bobby put a wand in his hand 

Abigail and the others began fighting the guards 

Henry and Jack began dueling Hansel but this battle was hard 
Henry had been disarmed and Jack was being chased away 

Hansel laughed until Otto stepped in and said I’ve been waiting for this day 

Otto had saw his friends die and vowed to avenge there deaths 

He battled Hansel until they were both out of breath 
At this point Jack and Henry had rejoined the fight 

They cornered Hansel with wands at the ready when suddenly there was a light

A jeep full of SS soldiers had appeared and they had special guns 

The guns fired magical spells and forced WTH to run 
WTH apparated to their base of operation and heard a noise 

They had intruders but luckily it was Otto and the boys 

Otto said we want to help you fight and put an end to this war 

Abigail responded if we are going to win we are going to need more
