This is an ode to all the brave men and women working in critical care facilities across the world.
Alarm bells ring
Listen as the monitors sing
Call the code blue
Seconds left, far too few
Hear the pounding boots
Through the doors he shoots
The harbinger of life has come
To do battle with life’s still drum
Feel the force of his blows
Watch as lifeblood torrents flows
Breath of life
Given to end the strife
Thirty then two
I will save you!
Don’t let the lifeline drop
Don’t let that fighting heart stop
Grab the paddles for the shock
On death’s door we shall not knock
Charging come the cavalry called
To wrestle with the heart now stalled
Clear the way, clear the seat
Make way for the returning beat
Brandish your hope and dig a lot deeper
Yell out loud that you don’t fear the reaper!
Thank you for listening.
