Father of Indifference.

Keep ticking,

never stopping.

We never learned from the Monsters.

They thought time stood still.

But it didn’t.

Time never stopped for Maple Street,

the clocks did.

Havoc ensued,

but just for them.

The world kept spinning.

Babies kept crying.

Punches were still thrown.

Help was still needed.

But time kept going.



Season 1 Episode 22 of the infamous The Twilight Zone, The Monsters on Maple Street was an episode in which aliens take power from a street (Maple Street) and watch as the people slowly but surely tear each other apart. Time stood still for Maple street as the aliens observed; afterall, the are many more Maple Streets.
