16 Minutes Of Life

16 minutes of life
He is fidgeting uncontrollably, breathing slowly but the alarm clocks harps happily.
Indicating 16 minutes of more pain..
Through the chaos of nerves in his brain he calculates the time, revaluates his plan and awaits death.

Manifestation

Two or three different forms at a time, but

And how the little room was crammed with coziness and light!

Drum-taps

Aroused and angry,
I thought to beat the alarum, and urge relentless war;

To sit by the wounded and soothe them, or silently watch the dead.

A joiner touched his cap; an agent came to tell

The Hero Of Rorke's Drift

And busily engaged in culinary operations was a private of the line;
But suddenly he paused, for he heard a clattering din,
When instantly two men on horseback drew rein beside him.
