Black Planet

She told me she had a strange dream
Of traveling to another world

Where animals had the power to speak
And act as if some spell was upon them

She heard the oration of a lion
Whose ambition was to conquer the globe

While an audience of snakes and spiders
Swore to help him achieve his goal

Then as she continued to listen
The screaming of sparrows rang out

Wondering where they might find shelter
As if all of them feared for their lives

And just as she started to waken
She asked an old horse who seemed wise

The name of this realm of darkness
And he replied it was once called Earth
