We've all played this game before,
I recall a specific time, and back then I thought it was a bore.
It was seventh grade and our teacher said we all got the answer wrong,
because we all wanted to bring a tarp, water, food, or a friend that was lifelong.
I understand the desire of company, or something to keep you sane,
but lets be real here, if I want to survive, I have to use my brain!
My teacher taught me many years ago that a flint is all I would need.
A flint can start fires, so airplanes would see me even if going at full speed.
A fire can also cook food, and desalinate water.
A flint can double as a weapon, to ward off squatters.
While this may not be the most sentimental thing to bring along,
it would keep me alive long enough to get back to the ones I love.
