Dark Jump Rope

Dad went crazy,
Mom got sick,
Baby got too close to the candlestick.

Home went quiet,
Home got dark,
Cat came home with a dead brown lark.

People start talking,
People get mean,
Neighbors can’t keep their gossip clean.

Stains like chocolate,
Stains like mud,
Have you ever tried to wash yourself with blood?

Jump way high up,
Come back down,
Play with me in the old ghost town.
