Trying to get away

Trying to get away

I dug a hole in my backyard and laid down in it.

The ground said, “What are you doing?”

I said, “I’m pretending I’m dead so that people will leave me alone.”

The ground said, “You gotta cover yourself up with dirt if you really want to make them believe.”

I covered myself up with dirt. I breathed through a straw barely sticking out above the ground.

I got drowsy and fell asleep.

When I woke up, I was above ground. I was curious how I got out.

I saw someone approaching me. I tried to say something to them, but couldn’t speak. When they reached me, they sniffed deeply.
