Kit Kelen #423 - if I'm asleep

if I'm asleep

when the angry shouts come
when first shots are fired
when the earth shakes
when the wave comes over
when comes the fatal knock on the door
when Pandora's box looses the whirlwind
when death is a certain thing like taxes
and sins are unconfessed

think twice before you wake me
from our better world


  1. it pans out that way
    it happens worse than that
    they'll lay your body
    right next to mine
    and neither of us
    with a name on our toe
    or even a number
    to say how we got there
    all that we set free
    or about the lies we confessed
