Documentary #2



Southern: It should have
never
happened.
Never

Leader: The fact that it happened
twice
makes me want to pee my pants

British: She told him first
The girl second
Father and sister, of course
puff
She didn’t see anything wrong
Should she have?
puff
I’m asking you

Rough: I rode home every day that summer
I prepared my speech
Took half a shift
I’ll do it when we get there
We got there
Never mind
there
We passed by
Shuffle
She had to ask me
in the end
Now imagine how heavy a burden

Valley: I remember when the news broke
being shocked and going with it
My team didn’t know how to respond
so, we didn’t
Until the next time

Rough: Stay straight
They said so but she
Said
It
I thought it made sense
Until it buried me alive
