Go on

Pitch black,
stood next to Jack,
there was Jill and Ed,
Tom and Ted,
could go on,
on and on about us all,
crowded into a sphere,
touching fear.
Listen for the call,
Jack told me, at that,
run for your bloody life.
Now I was totally scared,
then someone up the back cried,
here it comes ; go on.
A great gush of milky water
we were all washed up this pipe.
Stood up ; well tried.
Then hurled into another chamber,
watch out for that poisonous goo,
it got Blue and Jerry, Terry
and Paul, they fell screaming
against the wall ; go on.
I nearly fell but Jack caught me,
on we went,
heard yelling and moaning,
maybe someone phoning ?
Pipe we had left,
retracted, moved out,
there was no going back ; go on.
Hoping for some light,
but remained black.
Think we entered a hall, Jack fell,
lost him in the dark,
I heard him say
head for the egg ; go on.
Someone caught my leg ,
got free, nasty Godfrey tried to get me.
An egg I could see, almost home and free.
Everybody was trying to find a way in,
appeared this was the prize,
that's how you win ; go on, they cried.
Went to kiss the thing, pushed in,
found the door, shut behind me ; all alone.
All alone for
long months
then wouldn't you know,
travelled back down the chamber
fell out in a mass of goo; go on.
Hay ! ; guess you made that trip too ?
