She walked along the corridors,

Pacing each floorboard with care,

She didn’t step on a single crack,

But no one knew she was there.

She edged around the wooden fence

Tapping on each pole in turn,

She counted each one attentively.

But she still had a lot to learn.

She tried to do maths magic,

Adding all the sums in her head,

But all the figures multiplied was

her loneliness and dread.
