The Dead and the Boiled

Post by flyawaybefree » Tue Jul 20, 2010 8:02 pm

The zombie dogs walked through the boiling pit. Not truly zombies, but looking as haggard and forlorn as anything half-dead. I once heard tell that some disease made them unable to experience pain. It made me feel sorry for them, as paws and tails were burned down to the bone in the scorching water. As the people descend on me with torches and pitchforks, shrieking and roaring, their faces livid, the boiling pit at the bottom of the cliff at my back, I wish that I was like those lucky canines. But when I face this “justice”, I’ll feel it.

This was based on a dream that I had, and I knew that I had to write about it because it was so unique.
