Twenty Questions

Remember 'Twenty Questions'?

The game where the contestant sought
the right answer
By aksing is it animal, vegetable, or mineral?

Hiding always, yet never far away
What is it that scares me even to this day?
This lurking creature of the night
Still feared as much by light

Its lust for heated blood
Its silence like an eerie flood
Sends chills up the spine
Causes even dogs to whine

From whence this creature of the dark
All of nature its wilderness park
Oh so lonely in its stealth
Trapping it surely would bring wealth

Yet, hidden so deceptive in its cunning
From man nor other beast would it be running
This animal, vegtable, or mineral?
Twenty questions is the golden rule

Twenty questions is the golden rule

Twenty Questions (c)2001 Quentin Clingerman
