THE DEAD ARE HERE TO STAY





THE DEAD ARE HERE TO STAY

Why are the birds fleeing from Oasis?
Can they sense something?
Something that we can’t see?
They began flying at night fall.
And they haven’t stopped.
Where have they come from?
And where are they going?

We should take the hint
and leave this forsaken town.
A town in Florida,
where the sun shines at day
while dark shadows rule the night.
Haven’t we seen enough dead bodies?
Haven’t we lost enough of our own?
I say, “Time to go.”

The tides are rising.
The moon is glowing.
The shadows are appearing.
But Linda refuses to leave.
She wants to be the heroine.
And her friends want to perish
along with her.
Let them.
I’m leaving.
Goodbye to Oasis.
Goodbye to The Dead.

Oops.
I waited too long.
