The Last Ones Left

if we were the last ones left
and everyone disappeared
except for me
and you
what would we do?
We would be glad
I think
that neither of us was left
totally alone
would we live off stolen supermarket food
and have bonfires at night
would we jump on the display beds in the department store
just for fun
eat all the ice cream in the shop
before it melts
if you and I were the last ones left
we would have such fun
we could steal a bus
it wouldn't really be stealing though
if there was no one left to take it from
we could drive around the city
in our bus
or
we could ride all the rides at the water park
over and over
we could have all the time in the world
to play music
music everywhere
anywhere
on top of our bus
we could create such a harmony
we could run about the rooftops
and sing so loudly to the stars
without having to worry
about being heard
we could catch frogs in the grass
and build them homes
and sleep outside
to look for shooting stars
but mostly
all the rest would fade away
no stress
no school
no awkward passing in the halls
we could just be free
but
even if I was the last one alive
you would probably still ignore me anyway
so it really doesn't matter
