I was sitting by the window sill

Staring at a faraway hill

Should I take the plunge?

My heart began to lunge

Wondering what to do

Perusing what to construe

I’m in such a soup

Oh lord I have been duped

Should I jump out of the window?

Oh jeezz but it’s so low..

Heck I could still get out

But what if someone sees & gives a shout

Oh them I can always tackle

Even hang them up in shackle

How bleak is my future

Everything is a torture

I have time lemme jump

She calls out & my heart thumps

“Dinners ready we can eat”

There goes another chance in heap

When O lord will I escape her wrath

To escape her concoctions show me the path
