    Alarm clock ringing and I jump to a start
    Wiping my eyes with a fast-beating heart
    Looking at the time, dang, I’m late again!
    No time to primp or prep I’m gonna have to go as I am!

    Stepping out the door and into the public space
    A feeling of disharmony spreads across the entire place
    Something’s just not right but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is
    I notice the kids across the way enjoying a game of Simon Says

    They glance in my direction with a look of horror on their face
    And start running the opposite way in a very rapid pace
    I think to myself how odd, they act like they just saw a ghost
    Maybe they heard my stomach growling craving some eggs and French toast

    The clouds move across the sun and a haze of dimness fills the sky
    I start getting that eerie, scary movie feeling and I really don’t know why
    Like I’m the main character about to be pursued in a deathly chase
    Glad I have my Nikes on cause if I have to jet I’m not falling on my face

    The more people I approach the more terrifying things become
    Looking at me then panicking is everyone’s reaction, one by one
    Crowd disbursing with fear so I decide to run too
    Don’t have a clue why I’m running but you know that’s what we do

    I realize at that point I have no clue of my destination
    So I turn and head for home with a feeling of frustration
    Knowing that I must have just escaped the clutches of a tragic event
    I reach my house in safety with all my energy spent

    A sigh of relief comes over my entire body
    I head straight for the medicine cabinet to get something to calm me
    Standing in front of the mirror I see the terror staring at me in a horrific way
    For all the screams was the result of a case of Bad Hair Day!
