You pious people in your pews
All you reading about the arrival of some wondrously good news
A  new  horizon can’t you see?
Well imagine you were with my wife, beloved daughter and me 

We three had left together but suddenly were four
And I’m not certain about much more
Four in the quietude of dripping rain
No one letting go of the pinching pain 
because only the rain deserves such disdain

We picked up a hitchhiker as into rough waters we’d wade
And the gentleman told us to please call him ‘Suade’
A human storm by madness made
And then he made us walk blindly through the wood 
Until he told us to stay precisely where we stood
in the wilderness it is a mean and uncertain gamble  
As you amble through the briars and the brambles
You need  to possess  a lot of fortitude 
Because the icy winds are oftentimes too rude
Suddenly Suede swung with a swipe and that’s when my hope and strength were to fade
He rose up like an oak in a forest of fear and I opposing Suade
A madman, a maniac, a massacre made
And in that infinitesimal and infinite second, although I am a pacifist,  I could have killed Suede

Then suddenly the fighting was done
As Suede arose and I just wanted us all to run 
And doth did both men huddle close to his opponent
While adding Suede’s scent akin to camel dung to the troubles of his component
There were three of us and he was only one
But the one who wields the power also wields a gun
His mind was set on our flower of a daughter whom he decided to pluck
Now let’s all go out to find her, 
yeah, lots of luck
Suddenly he just stole our baby away
Away I say, and gone perhaps for ever and good
Hidden In a new area, in a brand new neighborhood

All we wanted to do was give a ride and fill a need to help the needy 
But some men are seedy and too many of them are greedy
His scowl was darkness, his blackish eyes seemed way too dim 
And that’s virtually all we can remember of  him
While the police find not the culprit in a world of the gross and the grim
My wife and I were defenseless and both our hearts were horrendously  hurt  
Oh and that’s what brought about the sorrowful phrase an “Amber Alert”
