News from Nowhere

The people who come walking
over the hill
come from nowhere.

We know this because
the tree on the top of the hill
is the end of the world.

Do not believe them
when they tell you otherwise
as they will, if you let them.

They'll tell you all sorts of stories
about life on the other side of the hill,
none of them true.

Some say their stories are dreams,
some say they themselves are dreams.
Whatever the truth of it,

they'll make it sound so good
that, before you know it,
you'll want to go back with them.

But be warned: if you go with them
back over the hill
you'll walk into nowhere,

become a dream.
When you see them coming
go inside and lock yourself in.
