It rained yesterday
And when it stoped
Hundreads of snails appeared
Strange.
They weren’t there before
 
And when that lady got knocked down by a truck
Hundreds of people suddently arrived to stare.
They weren’t there before either.
 
And when Grandmom was dying,
She suddently had relatives she never knew she had.
She was rich old lady.
Did you know?
 
People are gathering over there,
Like snails after rain
Like cannibals after blood.
I wonder what happened?
I wonder who died?
