The tale of Anxithicus
“Come out of you shell house Anxithicus”!
A voice requested outside the wintery window.
“Allow me to show you fearlessness”!
Fearful as ever I sat close to the door, able to hear the movements from the outside.
Crackling footsteps in the snow,
Then, the thundering voice again, ramming the house:
“Too long have you lingered on wanting to change, hiding from fear,
However, I have come, now open your door and face annihilation”.
Anxious and numb from flushing, I abandoned my house
And entered laughter.
