Imagine the world going wrong.
The human beings are immobile.
You cannot move. You cannot budge.
You can read this, but you can’t touch the screen.
You can’t open your mouth, or nod your head.
The trees can walk.
They stride right beside you.
You are afraid of being hit by their trunks,
So you try to move, but you cannot move.
The animals can talk.
They go past you, discussing the horror of your life.
You want to shout at them, but no, you can’t stir.
The angels are demons.
They come near you.
You are happy to see them,
But when you realize they are after you,
You want to scream, oh no, you can’t do it.
The demons are angels.
They come to help you.
But you are terrified to see them,
So they take off, leaving you alone.
The sky is about to fall.
You are shocked, you try to shift,
Thinking that you are dreaming,
But no miracle happens as these are real.
All species are carnivores.
They come to feed on you.
You are inches away from them.
And then you realize, to appreciate things in the world for what they are.
