Little Bo Peep Looking for Her Sheep

The Dystopian Tarot, The Lovers
Kerry O'Connor 

Little Bo Peep looking,
her sheep hadn't come home

Forehead branded with
an "X" as were her sheep

Peering over the hill
hoping to see her sheep

Scary scene appeared
Eons of years in one frame 

Adam, Eve, mythology, fables,
space travel, no sheep

Where, Adam didn't know
Ogress** bellowed "I've devoured" 

"You are next"
