Upon the Stairs-Just for fun

As I was walking up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
I wish, I wish he'd stay away."
- Hughes Mearns

One night as I climbed up the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today
I think he's from the CIA.

One sunny day I climbed the stair
and met a beauteous woman there.
Alas, she was not there today.
I wish she had not gone away.

One shadowed night upon the stair
I met a man with bottom bare.
I asked him why he dressed that way;
He glared at me and ran away.

Noisy children on the stair
Left toys and objects everywhere
I gathered them; tossed them away;
And by their mother have been flayed.

I live atop a long dark stair,
In an apartment cold and bare.
Why I don't move I cannot say.
There's no good reason why I stay.
