The baby's cry withers
the voices of the people around the room.
Eyes roll,
hands shaking

and the silence resonates.
A man with a white coat comes in
as the janitor quietly brushes the floor.

Dusts make their way through the open door,
the man with the white coat,

brushes off the particles from his hair.
The yelling continues,
the bell rings- zzzzzzzzzz.

All rush out,
feeling the cold wind from their back.
One boy taps the other, he just smiles back-
An announcement is announced-
leaving their faces with a blank.

One shouts, 1 more chance.
The man with the white coat pounds his gavel.
Ambulance leaves without a siren as the janitor's work is done.
