A can of lima beans hit the floor
Then another and another and another;
We stopped and stared and wondered
If it could have been caused by the other.
Flickering fluttering shadows moved closer
A loaf of bread flew past our face;
That's when we finally figured out
There was something unusual about this place.
Then a screech, a moan, and a piercing howl
Something loud being pulled and dragged;
That's when we headed directly for the door
And didn't worry about groceries being bagged!
