When she got to the mall she drove at a crawl
looking for somewhere to park.
She’d been at home and had answered the phone
the manager’s voice sounded dark.

'I’ve a lad here who calls himself Shark'.
At the mall so it seems, the son of her dreams
had been having a bit of a lark.
What had been done, although just for fun
would have been quite OK in the park.

had plunged them all into the dark.
