Fire Drill

Early morning fire drill
the alarm sounds

we all jump up from our desks
abandon our coffees
& crowd in line like good ants

no one trips & no one is
left behind

but
as
we
descend
eight
flights
of
stairs

in a calm & orderly fashion

all I can think about is
the overwhelming stench of B.O.
