Where Are We


Come brother come fast
Someone is shouting
Help-help
Seems to be painful yelp

Got response: -
Shut your mouth
Shut your door and sleep

I asked why?
He is dying, you also die
Goodbye

Whispered I
This is the life

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
