Lemming Effect


Early one morning,

Without any warning,

They rose from their beds

And got dressed eagerly.

They ran out the door

And met up at the shore,

And then, two by two,

They walked into the sea–

I hope reason finds

What was going thru their minds

As they went to their watery graves,

For nothing explains

Why their only remains

Are the red caps afloat on the waves.
