A tough knot, a tired mouse
A shrinking ray to a shrinking house
Asleep at dawn, awake at night
A tear or two, for body's plight

A street of fear, the black in the oven
A dying breed in the sack of the coven
A fleeting fog in the blood of the dark
A cockroach lives alone in luna park

A patchwork quilt of death and destruction
A rat's sinew hungrily disrupted
A force of nature to reclaim the Earth
A cast of worlds, each at the hearth

A fire that built and burned and broke lives
A frost that came and froze and stopped time
A dark that corrupted and killed light
A light that rose and revived and shined
