Death in Real Time

His last gasp of air

 

Tick, tock 

 

She stares in despair 

 

Tick, tock

 

But the children keep on screaming

The wind keeps on screeching 

The hammer keeps on pounding

The cars keep on sounding

 

Watching 

 

Tick, tock 

 

The hour

 

Minute

 

Second

 

To stop

 

But 

 

It does not
