On Time

On Time

When houses have metamorphosed to ashes
Then appear the fire fighters
After the valuables have evaporated with the robbers
We saw the police

The detonation squad arrives quickly
After the bomb blast
He kissed death and presto
The ambulance appeared

Our village was already drunk with flood
Then they brought the drainage
Always just on time
Whenever we needed them

    Wow… the sarcastic tone at the end… always on time-just when we need them.

    I like your works so.far and how precise they are. There’s always a take away.
