U- Ultimatum

U- Ultimatum


The first string of light appeared;
The screech of boxes was heard;
In a matter of minutes,
The silence in greenfield-
Shattered and paths, severed.

A phrase repeatedly said;
“It’s the last time”- a cycle unend;
Endorphins kicked and
Reality sunk deep;
A final ultimatum was set;

A cycle- should have an end;
That time- word said was meant;
When they went unheeded,
The cycle came crashing,
Thus screeching of boxes was heard.

An ultimatum is a cry-
A sign rock-bottom isn’t far;
When walked on and stamped on,
It’s an oral re-enforcement-
A strength to rebuild life, afresh.
