The poet said it best I see
His knowledge and his artistry
The future that his soul foresees
The path of fallen breadcrumbs
Where all of youth and life succumbs
As something wicked this way comes

The oracle within his words
Put truths within a tale absurd
So for centuries it’s not occurred
The risks he’s over come
The beat of hidden drums
When something wicked this way comes

The poet with his sonnet tells
The weave of knowledge and of spells
The wisdom and the fear this quells
And from what depths we plumb
When our fantasy is overcome
As something wicked this way comes

    By the pricking of my thumbs,
    Something wicked this way comes.
    Open locks,
    Whoever knocks!
    But don’t forget to wipe your bums.
