Creepy Mid-World Crisis

with dark pleasure the web crawler
walked in from the rain
having traverse a gloomy city
that thrives on quiet pain

he had looked on sad lanes
watched lonely figures of night-shifters
trying to be what they were not
elegant and life of the party

it pleasured him
that they share his loneliness
but it terrified him too
so he came into his dimly lighted house

he passed into another world
colourful and fantastic, magical
he wanted it, eagerly reached out
and they all turn to dusts

the web crawler stinking with shame
with dark roaring anger in his mind
screaming with a despairing heart
began to destroy the realm's essence

then the light brigade trooped in
began to defend their little domain
words of incantations and appeasement
slowly pushed the darkness away

within the magical land
a gentle cleansing began
the hornets slowly left
peace reigned again.
