Why does that tree
make those creepy shadow puppets
when I'm trying to sleep
(those gangling tree branches
always making funny shapes,
like the outline of a Gothic cathedral
or a spider
)?

Why does that tree (tap)
knock on my window when it's stormy out? (tap, tap)
He knows I'll never let him in the house. (tap, tap, tap)
Tomorrow, I think
I'll grab my trusty axe,
sharpen the blade,
and cut him down to size.
