They were warned...

Utterly unaware of the events leading to this situation, I awoke in a room surrounded by the dead!

"What is this!?" I cried. 

Many of the bodies were utterly decomposed, some appeared to have their faces freshly painted white. 

The stench! Oh, the terrible stench!

"I don't understand! Hello!? Is anyone there?"

The walls were all shut. No windows, no doors. 

I see a pattern! Each body, in here, they all wear the same attire - a suit! 

A suit is my work attire, as I'm a politician.


These faces! I recognise these faces! These are the faces of my peers! 

Faces of thieves, killers, the greedy and the prideful. The ugliest of ugly; now I understand, why it is, that I'm here. 

The people who screamed at us, the ones who's lives we destroyed. 

They had warned us - we were going to hell!
