With a screech like an owl that lives in the park;
It moves like a shadow from out of the dark.
While repeating the stories that come to their ears;
There in the tunnel a vision appears.
Running like rodents, scrambling for cheese;
They repeat all their stories like a spreading disease.
Thoughtlessly selfish, the frightened recite;
And there’s no joy in mud vile, not here not to night

    Hi Leonard! Oh, what ghoulish images to feed to one's imagination!! I'm glad it's bright and sunny outside...whewww. Strong imagery and metaphors running through this piece. Smiling within chases them away! Best wishes, Mikki
