Panic


Just witnessed a nasty incident.
So glad that it's now over.
My hearts all a flutter as
I'm trying to recover
At the supermarket coffee machine
Standing there on my own
When a nasty accident happened.
A woman fell off of her phone.
I saw the horror in her eyes,
Saw the fast approaching fear,
During those few vital seconds
It wasn't clamped against her ear.
For a instant it was just like
Taking part in a movie thriller:
I was looking into the eyes
Of a panicky potential killer.
Scrabbling it up quickly,
Normal position was assumed
As, giving me  a haughty look,
Normal service was resumed.
Reassuring words were poured
Quickly from the other end
As contact was restored with
Her equally panicking friend.
Be afraid, be so very afraid
If, when you're  on your own,
Confronted by a user who's lost
Contact with their mobile phone.
