Tanny’s more careful than me.
I wanted to barge right in, but he said wait so we waited.
Turned out I was right this time, but I appreciate his caution.
That first few weeks after the bug hit, people were likely to do anything.
Before the news went off the air for good, we’d hear stories of murder-suicides nearly every day.
They’d lose hope and love and everything but rage.
Eventually they lost that too.
Nowadays, there’s so few of us left you’d think we’d get along better, but no.
It’s the same as ever.
That’s why Tanny’s so careful.
