Vipers Along the Path

The road is long
       and it is not yet known
where it will eventuallly 
      lead us 
Dangers will face us 
     on our arduous journey 
There are vipers along the path 
     As we travel 
     we must be careful 
   A sudden misstep 
can have terrible consequences
    There are vipers along the path
On a journey whose end is 
       unknown 
 Our fortunes are tied 
to the stars in the heavens above
To avoid the vipers along 
       the path
We must watch the road
   vigilantly
FOR THERE ARE VIPERS ALONG THE PATH!
