I don’t sleep very well now a day.
I toss and turn, I’m wide awake.
I lay in bed staring at the clock.
Chunks of time I’ve seemed to have lost.
2 am turns to 3:45.
I see them just outta my sight.
In the shadows of the night light.
They are small little humanoids.
I must protect my wife and boys.
What do they want from us right now?
Will they dissect us like a cow?
Can we escape before they do?
Is it to late to fly the coup.
They have us cornered in the room.
My family is in real doom.
I have to protect them some way.
I cannot let them win today.
I look at my wife she is scared.
My boys are huddled as they stare.
On the floor cause they know its close.
I hug my wife, she grips my clothes.
I push her away with a kiss.
I can’t even imagine what she thinks.
She thought I was crazy before.
Her look, she doesn’t anymore.
I cannot lose my family.
Not to these things, that’s just not me.
I look through my drawer and find it.
It will save us, I just can’t miss.
But wait how many are out there.
I count the bullets that are there.
Six, six bullets is all I have.
Now this room feels like a death-trap.
I have to think what can I do?
Maybe this is it, we are through.
My wife, she is holding my kids.
I can’t imagine what they think.
These thing will not take them from me.
Please as if over my dead body.
They will be in the room real soon.
I look at the gun with cold gloom.
I know what has to happen now.
I did it but I don’t know how.
First the youngest then the oldest.
My wife, the last I put to rest.
They wont get them now, it’s over.
I look at my wife, I loved her.
The barrel is warm in my mouth.
I have braced myself for the sound.
I can’t believe this is the end.
Forgive our trespasses, amen.
