A Mysterious Creature,
Coming Out of The Dark,

Manda
From the
Makara's
Point of View
Why Are They So Scared,
I'm Not Really Mean,
You Know, I'm Not A Big Bear,
Aren't I Clean?

What Am I Going to Do,
Not A Friend In The World,
What Would I Do To Them, What Could I Do,
I'm Not A Snake All Twisted And Curled.
