I will attempt to tell you all
and will attempt to tell it right
the story of the secret Fall
and of a writer’s hidden plight.
These stories I am to unwind
are alien to you I guess
and ignorance of them, you’ll find,
was once my biggest wish.
But as a writer nonetheless
to this task I feel obliged;
to bear unto you all witness
and on these secrets shed some light.
So listen please and listen well
as I will bring these things to light
and as I will attempt to tell
the stories of a writer’s plight.
