In Case of Fire

In case of fire…by Leslie Noyes

In case of fire,
worry about yourself and keep the precious things close:
teddy bears
rhinestone rings
crackerjack puzzles

locate the nearest exit, noting it
might be behind you.
above all don’t
hesitate or
procrastinate

walk, don’t run to the lighted
doorway, leave
no one behind,
no stone
unturned.

though that might’ve been another part of the equation,
like stop,
drop,
and roll.
