Only the Critters Stayed

Lights out, lights out!in the run about, the critte rs flee to me. Storm, blazing lightening, air too w arm My friends with fur feel a curse On the wi nd- a sense of berzerk Huddling together, kit ty close for good measure Ozone green, bir ds stop the preen Feels like a train is gliding by, so close nigh Rumble the ground before the sound The animal s knew-I had no clue. we shudder in this shack back to back. A - growl here, a hiss there, out A banshee on the wind, mak es me want to flee Ye t the TWISTER keeps us here, shaking me nagerie Slamming ra in above our h eads- Oh the d read! Here we must stay - as buildings rock and sw ay Perha ps - for t h r es t of t h e d y h e a rts h e a v i ly w e i gh
