Don't Go There
You look at a handsome face, chiseled features and
eyes that see into your very soul.
He smiles a pleasant smile ... Just like an Undertaker.
He shows you all of your options and benefits galore.
His words lull you with his double-talk.
You look at him and he looks so normal
but something is not right.
As you look at him you glance past him
through the open window behind him.
A Raven sits perched on a post outside.
Unmoving except for the occasional blinking of his eyes.
You do not know how but you know he is there to warn you.
The lure of what the stranger says fills your mind and takes
It all sounds right. It all sounds great and best of all it doesn't
cost you a cent.
All you have to do is follow his instructions.
Just as you start to sign your name you happen to glance
toward the window. You see the Raven again.
His mouth is moving but no sound is heard.
But somehow, someway, you know that what he is saying is ...
Don't go there.
