from Something's Awry by Sterling Witt



Underneath the backdoor she crept
across the hardwood floor she leapt.

Musty cloak with rips and tears
tip-toeing up the creaky stairs.

Into your room with utmost ease
riding in on the key hole's breeze.

She peeps, she spies on fear she thrives.

She skips and scamps around your bed
dredging up nightmares for your head.

She crawls up on you like a throne
a wizened whisper, "anyone home?"

She rides you like you were a broom
zip zip zip zip zip zip zip zoom!

Some magic words will do the trick,
a little spell to make you sick.

Kazoo Kazam whip whip whip wham!

She presses down upon your chest
just enough, you get no rest.

Easy peasy, to make you fret,
she plays you like a marionette.

Flippity Flippity Flap
Tip Toe Tip Toe Tap!

Mental Shackles taunt your brain,
she cackles just to cause you pain.

She's figured out how to use your fear
to make her beautiful, youthful, and dear.

Truth be told, she's crooked and cold–
A wicked old coot who's quite astute!

You're mystified, you're mortified,
you can't remember, though you've tried.

Paralysis is wearing off,
It's time to whimper, cry and cough.

The hag has had her way with you,
there's nothing much that you can do.

You're all alone with torment and fright,
oh my goodness, what a horrible night!
