WHY

 

A SINGLE WORD QUESTION I UTTERED IN DESPAIR

I RECEIVED AN ANSWER I HAD NOT WISHED TO HEAR

THE ALARM IN MY HEART RANG LOUD IN MY EARS

ESCAPING THROUGH MY PIPES AND PIERCING THE AIR

 

MY SOUL WAS SHREDDED AND MY KNEES THEY QUIVERED

AS A PLETHORA OF WHYS SWEPT THROUGH LIKE A RIVER

HOW CAN THIS BE, I CRIED AS MY LOWER LIP TREMBLED

MY EYES PUFFED UP AND MY NOSE DID DRIBBLE

 

I ADDED A HOW TO MY GAGGLE OF WHYS

HOW DO I DEAL OH MY OH MY

MY FAVORITE SHOW HAS LEFT ME HIGH AND DRY

OH MY OH MY WHY WHY WHY!
