Shrapnel

Five minutes till time

the dimwit’s calculator

crashing on the ground

halts the progress of all those around.

Sending bits of metal and computer chip

the kid freezes, stunned.

Thirty seconds till time

scrambling to crawl out of the deficit

the pit, the trap

the scarred students fight

to overcome the shrapnel

to avert the amputation of their future.
