    dotsRunning Through a Dark Mansiondots
    -------------------------------------------


    Running through a dark mansion-
    Decrepit, Dusty, and simply old feeling-
    Rooms leading back to where they began
    From one hallway into a room to another
    And entering into the same hallway.

    An Autumn hallucination
    Inspired by M.C. Escher.

    But No, I cannot give him all the credit.
    Some must also go to the great Ray Bradbury.

    Running through a dark mansion-
    I flee into one of many rooms
    Particularly I enter what appears a bedroom
    Filled with ancient toys and random items
    And dust, and much dust covering indeed.

    I spy a key metal black and possibly old
    A skeleton key quite fitting for this place
    It locks the door nicely since I am in a hurry
    However its locking activates a voice
    "Three minutes." What does that mean?

    On the door withered paper hangs
    Describing combinations and itemizing toys
    And labeled next to each of the old things
    A description of a fantastic power
    It seems these toys are special indeed.

    The hunt begins through webs and dust
    To locate such powers that lure my lust
    I move with haste and sweat profusely
    To find the right combinations of toys
    To gain what should not be natural.

    "Three minutes." What does that mean?
    And how many minutes have I used up
    Frantically digging through this strange crypt
    And more importantly, what will happen
    When the final minute passes into zero?

    Looking upon dry crispy yellow paper
    I spy several interesting abilities
    But how to find and activate them I know not
    Soon enough I am lost in my self
    "Minute zero" the voice announces.
