THE MOON MAN

Quickly, quietly slipping through the sand
Staying in the shadows
Hiding from the man

The Moon Man is watching
He sees me everywhere
He sees me slinking back to darkness
Sinking in despair.

Overhead he's watching
And judging every turn
And in the night I'm wondering ...
Will I ever learn?

I'm sneaking and snaking
My way from east to west
Wondering which direction
Really is the best

I'm crawling & creeping
Along a twisted path
I'm feeling so afraid
I fear the Moon Man's wrath.

I hope that he can't see me
But he knows just where I am
And so I slither quietly,
Skulking close to land.

The Moon Man waits so patiently
Knowing I'll arrive
And knowing in the darkness
How much I moan & writhe.

The Moon Man is omnipotent
To him there's no unknown.
I only know what it's like to live
In the darkness all alone.

Hiding in the shadows
Hiding in the sand
Hiding from humanity
(the mighty Moon Man)

Very well written. The Moon Man doesn't sound like someone I'd like to run into.

Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
