Synopsis

An Obscure Trick

I went gently into that cool night
As my eyes grew faint,
And could no longer hear whispers nor sounds,
Far I found myself
From where I lay,
Due to sounds of slammed door and horrific scream,
With winds blowing bleak and shrill,
I saw a nasty little girl laughing at a huge tree,
Pray against the spirit of failure was all she said
As she fell like a roaring lion,
Every human present seems afraid,
Until the dawning of the day which was like a decay
Success made it clear that it was a plan by those involved to be famous,
I remember that night I was a goddess
Because I was not carried away,
All was done in arbitrary darkness when no electric supply
It was an obscure trick,
A trick in the dark.
