I Was A Traveler

Of Both Time And Space

I was a traveler of both time and space.

I had seen things no one should ever see.

Things that would make anyone with a still-beating heart weep.

Yet, I was compelled to continue. So I did.

I stood on a hill and looked out at the vast wilderness stretched out before me.

A land unrecognizable by civilized man.

A land covered with peculiar items of unknown origin or use.

A land full of strange, wonderful creatures.

I was afraid.

And in my terror, I raised my arms and yelled out, “I am a human!”

Then suddenly, a figure, like a woman, wearing a blue vest emblazoned with the name Walmart, appeared and said,

“Alright, human. You want to climb out of that shopping cart now. The store is closing in five minutes.”
