state of confusion
Raining again, yes, you might even say
it was a dark and stormy night,
best be heeding the warning signs,
though youíve been given the green light.
Stay focused on what lies ahead,
this road might throw you a curve,
for it leads to a darkened tunnel,
do be careful not to swerve!
Itís slippery, oh itís quite wet,
from the rain, donít you know?
It isnít what youíre thinking,
do you think Iíd stoop that low?
Then again, I COULD say,
I know this tunnel very well,
sometimes it can be tricky,
and it gets as hot as hell!
One thing I know for certain,
youíll want to take it sure and slow,
it takes extra skill and caution,
just watch out for the tidal flow!
