She snickered as she ran, until she noticed
What was behind her on this arid place?
On this place where life seems to be the bleakest
Carried on running, but her shoes were unlaced
In the desert where the cacti grow and locust
Behind her a stranger and she’s still being chased
On this distant place where there’s no place to hide
In the scorching sun all she could do was sighed*

  1. The place indeed is desolate with not much vegetation, barring the cacti. What is she running from, and where is she going to? Not much room to hide on this barren land.
