Cold, steel grey skies
Lock in the misery
Unpretty, unpopulated
Had to escape

Pride cometh before the fall
Flames extinguished
The remaining force
Had to escape

Only come back for mom and dad
The same guilt of not going to church
They'll be gone
Had to escape

Business died
So did dreams
We all waved goodbye
Had to escape

Sorry to leave at first
Reached for greatness
Don't look back
Had to escape

Window Craze [Rewrite]

I sit, staring out window.
Watching who is passing by.
Nothing escapes my watchful eye.
So, alert,
So tense,
I finally see something of fancy;
Placing two front paws on window sill.
I poke my snout so close to window;
I leave my breath mark.
Out a bark comes, then another;
Then a whine I begin to vent;
Venting my frustration that is inside me.
Wishing to be outside instead.
A push off window,
Off I go, running around house.
Back to window To see if it is there.
Yes it is and here I go;
Repeat of my venting
As I run around some more.
I am a crazy window watcher,
Who loves to see what is going on.
