Last Train To Nowhere

I could hear the noise coming from his head I chose the lesser of two evils quickly instead I tried to move away and escape all the sound But it was too late my intentions had been found I could hear the words but they didn't make sense He said " I can hold the world wrapped up in suspense " To find out what he meant I would have to stick around If I could weather the storm I knew I wouldn't be let down So I asked him the question that I knew I'd regret The answer that I got was one that I never will forget He said " You are the Joker and I am the King " " Inside my head are the answers to everything " I knew right away it was time to make my escape Had to get out fast, cut thru all the red tape The last train was leaving so I had to be fast I would soon be on my way, leaving at last Once I got to the train it turned into a big boat Since we were out in the Prairie I knew it wouldn't float I looked out the window and saw the smirk on his face That's when I realized I was never leaving this place Written on1/4/16
