Irony

I saw the sun for the first time in a week today. I hadn't really missed it, but it was odd. I walked outside and thought something was wrong. Blue sky with grey instead of all grey. I hopped on the metro and rode the line to the end, just outside the city. That's where they keep the big wal-mart type place and the mall. I got off the metro, crossed the street to the bus stop. As I walked toward the bus stop, I saw a man lying under it. Covered in a blanket. Except it was covering his face too. And he was laying on his back with his arms by his sides. He wasn't sleeping. Apparently they hadn't had time to pick up the body yet.
