I am a prisoner in my own home
I’m locked in here so tight
I can barely move or speak
Or rattle or squeak
Inside my cage
Just waiting for someone to peek
At me
Visit me
Break me
Out and set me free
Just once is all I ask
Is it such a tough task to crack
Because it’s dark as well
Inside my cell
And I’m going nuts
From my head to my guts
Which is quite appropriate
As believe it or not
I’m a peanut.
