"All the World's Evils" by D. M. Larson


You all have a problem and I have the cure.  

Don't you feel a great burden?  Don't you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders?  You feel like you have to deal with all the world's evils.  But I can change all that.  No more burdens.  No more worries.

Superheroes are the ultimate co-dependents.  Always looking for problems.  Never happy if there isn't a crisis.  Getting themselves involved with demanding citizens who don't appreciate them for who they are.  You can never do enough to please them. 

Let me be the hero now and I will fix all your  problems.

The weight of the world can be off your shoulders.  You can be happy again.

Have you changed the world?  Is it a better place?

Anyone can change the world.  You don't have to have superpowers.

I'm saying that ordinary people can make a difference in this world.

What about teachers, nurses, police officers?  They all make a difference.

It's time to get out of the hero business and let the 

world to solve their own problems. 


From the published play "Between Good and Evil" by D. M. Larson available on
