Last Hour

Last hour

For now their homes still stand
as they mingle in the street
but soon a deafening thunder
will split the roads under their feet.

The calm before the storm
blissfully unaware
of the horrors soon to come,
the inevitable despair.

But still a silence rings
it is quiet but before too long
a falling bomb’s whistle
will be their final song.
