INTO THE WOODS WE GO
Into the woods we go.
What’s in store we don’t know.
A green light is following us through
In shades of yellow and even blue.
The birds have disappeared from sight.
I can hear their wings taking flight.
A house stands in the clearing up ahead.
Off to the side is a broken down shed.
Two people are waiting at the door.
Can it be us they are looking for?
It is us they are staring at.
The man is waving his top hat.
This feels like one of those fairy tales.
The man is wearing top hat and tails.
The sky has just turned pitch black.
I want to turn and go back.
I can’t see the house or couple anymore.
I have a feeling that we are all done for.
