It is here

It is here

We shrugged when it was there; we didn’t even know where there was

No way it would come here, we told ourselves

Except him; he told us

Then it was over there; we knew where there was but we were way over here

Nothing to worry about, we told ourselves

Except him; he warned us

Next it was found there; we had been to where there was, so we looked around nervously at each other

Nah, we told ourselves

Except him; he chastised us

And now it’s here; we live here, we work here, we breathe the air here

We can protect ourselves, we assured ourselves

Except him; he preceded us to that one place that is neither here nor there
