Be Very Afraid

Screeching fingers along the ground
Be very afraid

Rustling in the underbrush
Be very afraid
Don’t hear the screams of children
Coming from the underbrush
The bushes hide its vile face
Be very afraid
Walk some steps towards the hidden leaves
Be very afraid
But be careful not to make a sound
Be very afraid
You will see nothing
As darkness will surround you
Do not look me so puzzled
Be very afraid
Many have disappeared in these parts
Be very afraid
I am one of them
Be very afraid
For I have felt the embrace
Of green fingers alive
They are the fingers of the human plant
Be very afraid
