The sun was setting, the guards clocking off,
Slave two met slave one and began to scoff,
“why don’t you leave? The road to the forest is unguarded”
“Why would I leave?” The notion was disregarded.
“I get my food, my workout and my friends,
If I were to leave, then that would all end.
I’ve been here for 10 years, it’s all I now know,
You’re new here, the choice is easy. For me, it’s a no.”
