The Flood - Spoken Word Piece

Voice A (Softly)

My car broke the dam

And the rain just kept coming down

Adding to the flood 

Coming down

Voice B (Calm but louder than A)

A surge runs through the crowd

Knocking everyone to the floor

And I stand alone 

Craving something more

Voice A

My car broke the dam

And the rain just kept coming down

Adding to the flood

Coming down  

Voice B (slightly louder and more hysterical than before)

The more things change

The more I stay the same

The louder I shout

The more I am to blame 

Voice A 

My car broke the dam

And the rain just kept coming down

Adding to the flood

Coming down

Voice B (louder and more exacerbated) 

The eternal flame

I cast aside

In favor of a light

That has a dark side 

Voice A  

My car broke the dam

And the rain just kept coming down

Adding to the flood

Coming down

Voice B (Loud and increasing to a shout, very panicked) 

Trapped on a sea

Of endless possibilities

And the only thing I ask for

Is some solidarity 

I am drowning!!!

Voice A

My car broke the dam 

Voice B  

I am drowning! 

Voice A 

And the rain just kept coming down 

Voice B (soft plea) 

I am downing. 

Voice A 

Adding to the flood

Coming down
