Life In A Hot, Windowless Basement Dungeon
I sit and sweat,
My pain does swell,
I'm living in
this unholy hell...

Time drags,
Like my lamed foot,
that twists and turns with glee,
The pain so much unendurable
Has got the best of me

The silence
of the empty wallet
The silence
of the grave
It's been me that I have lost,
No longer am I brave..
Living in this rat-hole,
is like living in a cave....

Cat In Rat Hole

In the old house there once lived a fat cat
From half a mile she could smell a wet rat
She was too lazy to run
Spent her time under the sun
Lying on worn out black and white old mat.

One day when she did not find her food bowl
She was sure it was the sly rat that stole
Her stomach started to burn
She saw the rat on the run
Chased it blind, her head got stuck in the hole.
