Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip,

Like sand in an hour glass -

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip,

Slowly yet steadily it flows -

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip,

A thick, red viscous fluid -

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip,

Quick! Someone stop the leak!

Drip. .

Drip. . .

Drip. . . .

Drip. . . . .

(Silence). . . . .

Too late.

Ever read Shel Silverstein? It sounds very similar to his Anaconda poem.
