Bar up all the windows,
put mattresses on the walls.
Plaster shut the doorway,
and clear out all the halls.
Sound proof the whole ceiling,
and fill the cracks in the floor.
Quarantine the building,
just like you've done before.
Fiddle with the stopwatch
that’s wrapped around your neck.
Count down by the hour
until there's only seconds left.
Treat me like vermin,
ignore me, then just run along,
but remember it's the cockroaches
that survive atomic bombs.
