show us both hands
Francis show your scars
you recall the plane crash, right?
fire did consume all aboard
-all but you-
will you tell the people at home how that feels?

panic from the cockpit
then the mud on your teeth
fingers smoldered softly, right?
tell us what you saw in the kerosene blaze
share with us the horror of that dark orange haze

report now
millions of people wanna know how you feel

you were deaf, blinded
galaxies away
talking to a creature, right?
how did you experience waking up burnt?
will you draw the creature that made you return?

report now
millions of people wanna know how you feel
so Francis did you return just to swallow your story?

and at last Francis replied:
'all i have seen and felt, done, and heard
with each passing hour becomes less relevant to you'

show us both hands
show us your hands
