Trouble Island II
Short Story by: Stormbird Throneshaker
Are you for sure that we aren't in Atlantis
Why good heavens no, you should pray like a mantis
You're all on top of this mountain of Trouble
and no one has left yet without bursting their bubble.
You mean that we can get out of Trouble
to go back home where it's safe and sound
Well it's not all that easy he said rubbing his stubble
for it will follow you till it finds you just like a hound.
What bought all of you here in the first place
for you all look as if you were in a race
We're just on vacation from work and from school
and here we are stranded like some crazy fool.
You're all here because you thought it was fun
but Trouble has caught you and there's no where to run
Here in Init you are and you're all out of breath
Outofit isn't as easy to find for the jungle is full of death.
Though I must say and I know that it isn't funny
If you were in Outofit you wouldn't be here like a dummy
You weren't very smart when you all set out to sea
and you surely didn't think to be running into the likes of me.
Just who do you think you are we said in a fury
Why I'm the chief cook, bottle washer, your judge and jury
Oh did I say two towns on Trouble, I think that I did
You may take the river of Doubt, no doubt I did as a kid.
Throughit is a town you'll never forget on this island so wild
and who knows whether the weather will be hot, cold, or mild
Death Jungle or Doubt River will take you all there
A few make it safe and a few others it just might scare.
