Medusāpsis

Āpsis reizēm neatšķir
Taisnību no joka
Reizēm āpsi taisnība
Dzen skraidīt šaurā lokā

Reizēm āpsim prieku daudz
Reizēm daudz ir moku
Jo īpaši kad kādam ģeld
Pār āpsi nogāzt koku

Grūti ārā izrāpties,
Kad visas ķepas lauztas
Vēl grūtāk sasaukt palīgā
Kad šķeltas ribas plaušās

“Āpsis nemirs, cita dzīts”
Iekšā dusmas sāpes lok
“Kad āpsim dzist — to āpsis lems”
Ārā zobi bedri rok

Ne pirmais koks, ne pēdējais
Ne pirmā nāve tuva
Un āpsis nemanīja pats
Kā medusāpsis kļuva

My Shelter

Jeb, “I Was Well Prepared, On The Night The Sky Fell”. Tikai angliski.

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

On the day the zombies came, you were not afraid

Šis tikai angliski. Iedvesmots no gulētiešanas ar Nīla Geimena “The Day The Saucers Came” un pamošanās pie Spīganas “Migla ir mans mīļākais gadalaiks” foto ieraksta.

On the day the zombies came, you were not afraid
Geeks are not afraid of zombies
Geeks are ready for the apocalypse
Like for nothing else

You were not afraid because zombies want flesh
Or zombies want brains, or both
And you thought, as you so often did,
That you didn’t have much of either

On the day the zombies came, you were at a moor
Taking photos of the trees, the bushes and the sky
As it tried desperately and in vain
To hide its naked beauty in the mist

You were not afraid because there was beauty here
To die in this place, at this moment
Would be like getting painted away
Immortalized in a vision of a better world

On the day the zombies came, you checked the news
It said the zombies did not eat flesh, or brains
They only ate things that captured light
Solar batteries and photo cameras

On the day the zombies came, you were very much afraid
