Threatened Bell

The Threatened Bell

 

“Everything here is on a timer, sir.”
Already I can hear the threatened bell.
“A planner shouldn’t be a worrier.
Everything here is on a timer, sir—
And, when alarms go off, my teammates stir.
Order is not an emblem, sir, of Hell.
Everything here is on a timer, sir!”
Already I can hear the threatened bell.
