It’s running so fast, I can’t keep up. I have to catch it. I’m getting angry. I’ve gotta kill it.
It’s leaving behind a trail of goo and slime. I’m dirty. I have to clean it up.
I’ve lost it, where did it go? I’m hopeless. Oh no! I’m going to give up.
I’m searching, seeking, looking. I’m too lost to find it. All is lost.
There it is! Way up high! I can’t measure up. I can’t reach it!
It falls, got it. Hurry, kill it! It’s still alive. Smash it, lift my foot…it’s still alive. Can’t even squash it, I’m a failure.
