MC's Whispers

Whispering Silences

Monsoon

© Dale Rogerson

They were warned it was monsoon season. But they went anyway.

They were told it was worse than they thought it would be. But they ignored the cautions.

They believed it would be an ideal getaway regardless. A change from life itself. They saw it as an adventure; a once-in-a-lifetime journey.

They were exhorted to think again; because some things are more ideal in our heads. But they disregarded the heed.

They flew there in excitement, snubbing the alarm that was raised.

They lived it all in a single night.

And stayed together, even in the end of the world.

    Looks like it was indeed a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. And they won the Darwin award on top.

  9. Perhaps they should have heeded the warnings? But on the other hand, they were together through it all and that seems to have made a difference.
