  1. A Rude Awakening


I went to bed and I closed my eyesTried to sing myself lullabiesNo such luck – I said mercy meGot taken out of my reverieAnd then I heard three ravens sing“You’re in for a rude awakening”I met a man, a gambler by tradeHe was sitting pretty, yes he had it madeA high stakes game, no walk in the parkThe deck was stacked and the cards were markedHe said, “I might have to pawn my diamond ringI’m in for a rude awakening”The moon looked down and the hour was lateI dreamed of wolves at the door and barbariansat the gateOf a piece of parchment rolled up thinThat the messenger brought as he leaned right inAnd gave cold comfort to the kingIt read, “You’re in for a rude awakening”I tossed and turned, beset by fearsMy pillow was wet with tearsNero grinned, said, “There’s a lesson to be learnedYou know what I was doing while my city burned”And he dragged the bow across the stringsSaid, “You’re in for a rude awakening”
