That’s all it takes to jolt you, friend

A few unexpected drops of red 

An unwelcome image blinking on 

A familiar black n white screen…

An unhappy number on 

An awaited lab report…

A frown on the surgeons brow

Bring drops of sweat to your own

That’s all it takes to jolt, my friend

Make you want to bolt.. is it the end!
