Poetry

Paradox
Submitted anonymously

Cycling home from the pub
three sheets to the wind.
Which is the lesser of two evils?
Wobbling down the road, or
through the park?

No, don't go through the park.
It's dark. It's not safe.
Monsters live in the park after dark!

Deciding that the fear of the unknown
is safer than the known fear of dodging vehicles with senses finely blurred, i choose the park.

The park is dark, quiet, empty.
There are no cars in the parking lot.
There are no people about.
Why would there be?
The park is unsafe - bad things will happen!
Don't go into the park after dark.

But if there's no one here,
who will hurt me?
