I have no idea what posessed me to write this one. Just an odd idea that hit me one day. You have to read the last few lines like the female voice over an airport PA system. Watch out for incoming lemmings! Oh, sorry about the caps, that's the way I typed it in and printed it out with my Commodore 64 back in the day so that's the way it went in this 'puter when scanned with my OCR proggie. (Yes, like many things I have on here, it's old and dusty.)


 

The White Zone

FLYING LEMMINGS DOVE UPON THE CITY
KAMAKAZI RODENTS SHOWERED DOWN ON THE POPULACE
THE SCREAMS WERE INCREDIBLE
AND WHEN THE CARNAGE ENDED
ONLY ONE VOICE COULD BE HEARD
REPEATING OVER AND OVER
...AND OVER...
...AND OVER...
...THE WHITE ZONE IS FOR THE IMMEDIATE LOADING
AND UNLOADING
OF PASSENGERS ONLY
NO PARKING...
