The Long Walk

Somewhere in suburbia a crime has been committed.
A criminal is shot dead and the secret never admitted.
So now it is up to the specialist, all of whom drew straws.
This is the risk they take upholding all the laws.

Sweat beads the forehead of the officer picked to go.
Desperately he breathes as he paces moving very slow.
All his tools are glued, and velcroed against his arms.
If nothing falls then no-one dies, nothing comes to harm.

He approaches the TV and walks carefully to the stove.
He opens up the refrigerator and lifts up the fallen cloths.
He waits as the timer counts and is starting to run out.
Moments later the wires cut, and outside you hear the shouts.

Another warrior victoriously defeats the long and tragic walk
