I don't like the world.
So I've decided to pretend it doesn't exist.
I won't miss the hunger, or the stress.
The long hours of paperwork and internet searches.
I will fondly remember the sunsets and landscapes.
The weekends and chocolate.
But, I won't let these things distract me.
Because I've made up my mind
to ignore it all.
So I've decided to remain here.
Forever with my head stuck in the ground.
If only I was an Osterich.
Then perhaps I wouldn't feel so silly.
