My Shelter

a.k.a. “I Was Well Prepared, On The Night The Sky Fell”

I was well prepared, on the night the sky fell
I read the countless warnings, heard the endless bells
I had everything made ready, I was on my way
I knew where my shelter was, and how long to stay

I might have been prepared, on the night the sky fell
I read the countless warnings, heard the endless bells
I left no time to reach my family, friends or anyone who cares
I ran ahead, I knew the way — straight ahead and down the stairs

I thought I was prepared, on the night the sky fell
I read the countless warnings, heard the endless bells
I am in the shelter now, deep beneath the ground
I know there’s no reception, and no way to be found

I was not prepared, on the night the sky fell
I read the countless warnings, heard the endless bells
I thought I’d thought of everything, but one thing slipped my mind
My shelter has a quirk of sorts — it won’t open from inside
