So I wrote this really really late into the night, and I just wanted to know anyone and everyone's thoughts on it! I hope it evokes a reaction in at least a few people, the aim was to get people to think just a little. If you didn't get any reaction but, "well that's kinda dumb", please tell me how I can make it better! Thanks for taking your time to review it (if you do), or just reading it (if you did)!

Questions.
