Escape

Wrap it up in plastic,
if you would. Seal it tight.
Take care that the edges and
folds line up right.

The cellophane needs to be
three inches thick,
with space for some bedrooms,
a bath, and a vent.

You’ll bury the electrical,
sewer, and cable,
leave room for additions
and tack on the label.

Seal us all in,
then write with a sharpie,
“Open on New Years, 2070.”
