( Bruce Willis song lyrics )
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
Copyright 1998 - MickTerry.com

He was in the men's room
when the compost hit the fan,
doing what comes naturally
for almost any man.
He heard the sounds of popcorn
filtered through the building's walls.
Then a bullet sliced above his head,
tearing through a couple stalls.

Had he stood up sooner,
then it would have been the end
as it was in the stall next door
for a man he'd once called friend.
His shock and horror mounted
as the blood spread 'cross the floor.
WHAT THE HELL was GOING ON?
Did he dare go out that door?

    WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
    Just what is happening here?
    Are we as brave as we'd like to think
    or do we move from fear?
    WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
    Do we dare to choose
    actions that could save the day
    when there's the ultimate to lose?

Too late for his neighbor,
he had better make a plan.
Should he go to others' aid
or should he make a stand?
Visions of Bruce Willis
quickly came and quickly went.
If he stuck his head outside that room,
his last breath would be spent.

He'd seen all the movies
where the hero drops a grate,
climbs into the ductwork,
barely makes his great escape.
But the A/C vent was tiny
and no window did exist.
He was trapped inside his head.
He was not prepared for this.

    CHORUS

Choosing to do nothing
is a choice all of its own.
Crouched in fear on top the john,
he dared not make a sound.
A pounding on the door and a terse,
"Get off the can!",
brought him back to realize
he'd been in Walter Mitty Land.

    CHORUS

( not to be confused with Walter MIDI or Walter Mathau )
is the main character in James Thurber's short story,
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,
in which a hen-pecked husband escapes from his milque toast life
into imaginary fantasy worlds where he is always the macho hero. ]
