The Fire Alarm Test

The Fire Alarm Test

By David Smith March 11, 2017

 

Like a metronome, as the fire alarm beats away;

Checking the decibels on this fine day;

That irritating beat from floor to floor;

That piercing sound, What a chore!

Engineering intelligence, for what is worth;

Documenting sound, like a cry at birth;

It’s only a test, there appears no end;

That distressful sound, a message to send;

Checking the volume when it’s quiet and on high

A study in irritation,

The alarm with a cry;

It is only a test of the fire alarm

That constant rhythm may cause a lot of harm;

If smoke won’t get you, the fire alarm will;

To ignore the beat, a death defying thrill.
