YOU LIE IN BED SWEATING AWAY,
DREAMING OF YOUR AWFUL DAY.
SO MANY THINGS HAVE GONE WRONG FOR YOU.
WELL WHAT IS IT, OH WHAT DID YOU DO?
AT THE BREAK OF DAWN YOU WERE UP AND AWAKE,
WITHOUT ANY KNOWING OF YOUR UPCOMING MISTAKE.
SO INNOCENTLY YOU SAT THERE, WATCHING THE SUN,
FORESEEING THE DAY'S MISCHIEF AND OF COURSE THE DAY'S FUN.
AS YOU WERE WALKING THE STREETS, YOU SAW LAURA SPRAT,
AND AROUND HERE SHE IS KNOWN AS THE TOWN'S SPOILED BRAT.
YOU WATCHED WITH GREEN EYES AS THAT NEW CAR DROVE PASSED,
YOU WERE JEALOUS, AND YOU HAD TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, AND FAST.
THE CAR CAME TO A HALT AT THE TOWN'S CENTER SQUARE.
LAURA STEPPED OUT AND TOUSLED HER HAIR.
JUST ABOUT THEN, A GREAT IDEA CAME TO MIND,
AND THIS WAS A PLAN OF THE DEVIOUS KIND.
THOSE TIRES OF HERS LOOKED TOO FILLED WITH AIR,
AND SLASHING THEM UP WOULD BE QUITE A DARE.
BUT YOU FELT THAT THIS WAS NO CHALLENGE TO YOU,
SO YOU PULLED OUT YOUR KNIFE AND STARTED CUTTING ON THROUGH.
JUST AS YOU MALICIOUSLY FINISHED THAT DEED,
LAURA'S BOYFRIEND SAW YOU AND QUICKLY SALLIED.
AS FAST AS YOU COULD, YOU GOT UP AND YOU RAN,
AND YOU KNEW IF YOU STOPPED, THE BATTLE BEGAN.
YOUR CHEST STARTED SEIZING AFTER A MILE OR SO,
HOW MUCH MORE COULD YOU TAKE, HOW FAR COULD YOU GO?
YOU HAD TO STOP SOON OR YOUR HEART WOULD SURE BURST,
SO YOU DIVED IN AN ALLEY, IN GARBAGE, HEADFIRST.
BUT LAURA'S DEAR BOYFRIEND HAD YOU IN SIGHT,
SO YOU WERE STUCK IN ALLEY, NOT READY TO FIGHT.
BEFORE YOU COULD THINK, HIS HANDS GRABBED AT YOUR THROAT,
NOW YOU WERE SCREWED; YOU WERE STARTING TO CHOKE.
FROM THE CORNER OF YOUR EYE, A BROKEN BOTTLE WAS IN SIGHT,
BUT THE NEXT MOVE YOU MADE WASN'T QUITE BRIGHT.
YOU JAMMED THE BOTTLE INTO HIS SIDE WITHOUT DOUBT.
AS YOU LOOKED DOWN AT HIS WOUND, YOU SAW BLOOD GUSHING OUT.
AFTER A MOMENT OR SO, HE FELL TO THE GROUND.
YOU KNEW HE WAS DEAD, AND YOUR HEART STARTED TO POUND.
A VERY SMALL WIMPER CAME TO YOUR EAR,
AND STANDING BEHIND YOU WAS LAURA IN FEAR.
SHE STARTED TO SCREAM AND SHE WOULDN'T SHUT UP,
SO YOU PUT YOUR HAND ON HER MOUTH IN THE FORM OF A CUP.
LAURA DIDN'T LIKE THAT, SO DOWN HARD SHE BIT,
AND A TRICKLE OF BLOOD FLOWED OUT OVER YOUR WRIST.
THE NEXT THING YOU DID WAS CRAZIER YET,
YOU ALSO KILLED LAURA FOR BEING A THREAT,
A THREAT TO YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FREEDOM OF COURSE,
NOW THE COPS COULDN'T FIND YOU, THEY HAVEN'T A SOURCE.
YOU DECIDED TO DART HOME AND LOCK YOURSELF IN,
AND WHEN YOU GOT THERE, YOU MENDED YOUR SKIN.
DO YOU SEE WHERE YOUR TERRIBLE JOKING HAS LEAD?
YOU'RE ON THE RUN FROM THE COPS AND TWO PEOPLE ARE DEAD.
