It's Dark In Here

I am writing these poems
From inside a lion,
And it's rather dark in here.
So please excuse the handwriting
Which may not be too clear.
But this afternoon by the lion's cage
I'm afraid I got too near.
And I'm writing these lines
From inside a lion,
And it's rather dark in here.

by Shel Silverstein

Like this a lot, but I am really not sure exactly why. I think it just seems really wistful, and 'fatal'. I will make sure I read some more of your work when I get chance. Jon.
well amanda i like looking behind mirrors, but never found anything i found everthing else by looking at the mirror, but make sure you never break one it could bring you bad luck Warm regards AJS
