Should’ve Known Better (Poetry)

anonymous person imitating terrible monster behind window

Straight out of a pleasant dream
More a treat than sweetest ice cream
What’s this I’ve stumbled upon?
Too beautiful to explain
From it’s too good to be true
Should’ve occurred to me something was wrong
Things are never what they seem

Should’ve known better
To every pleasure there’s a catch
Put so far out of reach
Having me play fetch
It was a fruitless endeavor
Should’ve known better
Than to wander into this cage
Whilst little devils lock the latch
