• The power's out.
    I stand now, halfway up on the escalator;
    Halfway from my car in the parking lot,
    Halfway to the once-in-a-lifetime sale at
    It's just my luck, too,
    To be stuck on an escalator.
    And its the one day I remembered my club card
    For the video store.
    But, no,
    I get to be stuck on the escalator.
    In a dark mall.
    Just my luck to be stuck
    On an escalator.
    I'm starting to wonder
    Why someone would even invent an escalator.
    Wouldn't a simple staircase
    Be sufficed enough?
