Behind the Door


There's a creature in the closet
waiting for you to open the door.

It's banging the walls,
jangling the lock,
and screaming,
"Get me out ah here!"
"Don't lock me in anymore!"

Poor little bugger
How lonely he must be.

Isn't there something
we can do for him?

Hey – have compassion:
All the critter wants
is an arm to chew on
or someone
to share their brains.

Don't be afraid of dah creatures
knocking at yer doors –

If you survive the encounter
you'll be stronger.

The real monsters smile on TV
brain-washing multitudes
into believing mass consunerism
& militarism help prosperity.

Wan-Sze: This guy is weird.
Nadia: Good. Creative non-conformity is healthy.
