Turn back, turn back

There was a path in a wood, and I—

I ran the other way, because I saw the squirrels starring at me in their malevolent way

And that is the only reason I’m here today.

So

you’re deciding on your path

but

there’s really only one

and

it looks unsafe

maybe

you should just turn around

because

you can’t leave the path

once you take it

and then

you notice the squirrels

watching you

in a weird way

like they might attack

if you leave the path

and getting eaten by squirrels

well

honestly

it seems unpleasant

and embarrassing

for loved ones

who when asked

how you died

would have to lie

or say

you were eaten

by squirrels
