which queue were you in?

we were standing, you and i,
in the pre birth queue
in some strange dimension
and as we both
reached the front
i looked at you
and asked
‘are you sure
about this?’
‘sure!’ you said
‘SURE!’ you said
and those words
have haunted me since.

and thus we received
our download
and headed off for the birth queue
I will never forget
looking back at the 
sign above the our queue
that read
‘LEARNING THROUGH SUFFERING.’

It was a very long queue.

Never again.
