Since there are about 80 billion dead people
All of us above ground are in the minority.
People who’ve died
Belong to the club with the most enrollment
I wonder if the dead prank the living?
In an older sibling kind of way.
Like they know more than we do
and can’t help but tease us.
They think it’s funny we’re afraid of the exit.
Or perhaps they’re all simply dust
and we have the upper hand.
