from Left by Halloween Jack



Come inside, the cloaked man smiled,
Say a little and stay a while,
Turn a best friend to a foe,
That’s the way the story goes.

The beginning was good and fine,
Then he read between the lines,
He should have waited for the page to turn,
But he couldn’t so his hopes were burned.

Twisted dreams and ruptured minds,
If we dig I wonder what we’ll find,
Hate to say I told you so,
But that’s the way the story goes.

If you covet her as a lover,
You’re as bad as judging books by their cover,
This library is full of gold,
But pick a wrong one and you’ll lose your soul.

On the bookcase, high on a shelf,
Is a tome about yourself,
It will tell you what you know,
That’s the way the story goes.

Tell me stories.

The cloaked man’s eyes turned to fire,
As the bad guy did require,
And the good man swung on a pole,
That’s the way the story goes.

If you see it for what it is,
Tear the page out, he’ll get his,
Write it down and let it mend,
But don’t tell anybody how it ends.

That’s the way the story goes.
