Buried Alive

Post by Hatching Phoenix » Fri Jan 21, 2011 5:48 pm

The hero opened his eyes to the sound of dirt hitting the lid of the coffin. He was in total darkness, buried alive. He'd have to act quickly.
Above ground, a group of men watched the unmarked grave.
"It's been four minutes. Maybe this time?" said a man with a shovel.
"Not today, you fiend!" the hero shouted and burst through the loose soil. Someone shouted, "Time!" An assistant fired a tranquilizer gun into the man's chest. He flopped over. "Okay, let's get him set up for the next run."
"Man," a trainer said. "The Olympics sure have gotten weird."

Agree.
Does anyone remember seeing the box this came out of?

Well you can tell from a glance that I can't walk
and I'm six feet down, no way to talk.
Nothing's loud cause I can't hear
Underneath this earthen barrier.

And now it's all right, it's O.K.
And you may look the other way.
Not too hard to understand
Two tons of dirt affects a man.

Whether you're a brother
Or whether you're a mother,
I'm buried alive, buried alive.
Feel the city walkin'
And the earth a shakin'
Cause I'm buried alive, buried alive.
Oh, oh, oh, god
Buried aliiiiiiiiiiive.
