I WARN YE!

Vain man of this modern-day morn,

Know ye not the danger ye spawn?

Venturing forth into realms never dare ye understand?

Awaken not the cat!

Standing at the threshold of concepts unread;

Down corridors deemed sacred

By puffed knowledge ye are lead.

Never realizing, as your quest you seek to obtain

Lightning has flashed, thunder has rolled;

Across untold ages to dash against that door!

Awaken not the cat!

Vain man of this modern day morn,

Know ye not the danger ye spawn?

Venturing forth into realms never dare ye understand?

Awaken not the cat.

Those that take that which cannot be taken;

Those that rain upon our cloudless days.

Toying with a destiny ordained before the foundation of the world.

Those that dare to touch the forbidden Flame;

It will chill their mortal souls!

I warn ye pious, ignorant, unlearn-able man –

 

AWAKEN NOT THE CAT!
