The gimmewicks and glimmerricks they grabbed me by the throat
the terror-trots and horror-rots carried me off in their blankened totes.
The truth and past and present merge as I whisper, "Go away".
But still those haunters stalk me down and have their nilly way.
The seconds pass and calm returns. I steady myself and say,
"I will never open up that door again on any other day"
and vowing that I'll not think of you a triple trilly miles away
as I know now that our tempestly tale is the sirlion food of such gilly willy way.
