Murder, murder, heinous murder! 
I dreamt a dreadful dream in that ominous night, 
When I was deep asleep. 
Being terribly afraid, I woke up immediately 
And saw the dark murderer had fled very fast. 
But it had already accomplished the worst damage for me, 
The cruel devil had truly murdered my joyous soul and pleasant mind, 
I remained absolutely deserted and empty.
