Poemdroids Only performed at Trees Organic, Vancouver, Canada
June 6, 2013
My girlfriend and I were hiking on a mountain and we came across a trap.
My curiosity got us in a cave, we heard the door slam behind us.
There is an electric chair next to the entrance.
Suppose somebody has to sit on it to open the door.
Guess that would kill that person.
We talked it over for a couple of days, then decided to live here just the two of us.
We argued often but were happy with our days.
In the course of time, we got old, my girlfriend got sick and passed away.
Crying out loud, I dragged her body and set it on the chair.
The door clunked, and then opened in silence.
In the next breath!
Electrical shock should have burned her to black charcoal, but nothing happened.
The electric chair was only a chair.
I slowly closed the door, and returned to the cave.
