Crossing a deadly silent water,
like an anchor that immediately sunk.
A bottled fear was opened,
too late from a careless drunk.
Fiery glow of blue and white,
illuminated a seductive halo.
this flame gently licked a moth's wings,
engulfed the life it once owned.
Fatal decision of Neo,
a red pill dug the rabbit's hole,
ever prying, his story unfolded,
the Matrix was borne for us to know.
A scholarly endeavor,
to harness the power of electrons.
A kite flew with a metal key,
delivered a shock - withdrawn.
The mother of all curiosities,
Adam and Eve introduced.
The yearning to seek knowledge,
an apple betrayed the truth.
Deceitful eyes on a cat's mischief,
ignored a rattling from its path,
A lightning struck with fangs.
this bite from a slithering wrath.
