Failure

Suggested audio: Transfusion by Nervous Norvus

Stopped breathing
Blood oozing forth
Chest compressions fail
Mouth to mouth in vain
Wounds leering grins
Yellow fat shining through
Crimson river slowly flows
Past nosy neighbours
Beneath careless feet
Eyes blank towards the sky
Face without expression
Curious cats tread lightly Birds shrill in funeral song
Life goes on
It never
Until the next car
Fails to stop
