Something was wrong

Yes, something was wrong
The dog whined the cat snarled
My hair stood on end

So I looked outdoors
It wasn't evangelists
But was the devil

That cunning demon
Fit as an agile gymnast
Leapt onto the roof

So I lit a fire
Hoping that bewildered him
And prayed for some help

An angel bless him
Came clothed in a fleecy jacket
Of worsted fabric

Now touching my arm
Pointed to the waxing moon
Waiting for his chance

Then beyond the house
We heard a mournful howling
The angel set off

Now gone from our sight
We heard them wrestling above
'Til it was over

The dog barked for joy
And the cat purred with delight
What an adventure!
