    I woke up this morning to look through the window And what a monster did I see A melancholy beast with pasty pale skin A haunting skeleton staring straight back at me I stood and I stood, quaking in fear The creature stared back with a sleepy sneer I blinked and it blinked I winked and it w...

    I stand in the middle of the road Two futures ahead and the path behind And I realize I must make a choice The path to the left or the path to the right? I walk nearer and see the decision is close Time is forcing me on And I come to decide at last. With a twist of my foot, I turn left I fol...
