The Falling Elevator

 

The Falling Elevator

 

By Elton Camp

 

It was Meg’s worst recurring nightmare

She’d use a defective elevator somewhere

 

It’d fall thirty stories to the ground

In little pieces she’d then be found

 

Little comfort did she take

About the car’s safety brake

 

An elevator can’t possibly fall

She didn’t really believe at all

 

Years of trudging up & down stairs

A psychiatrist alleviated her cares

 

So elevators she began to ride

Apprehensions were set aside

 

Meg pushed the button to descend

With a lurch the elevator did begin

 

“Oh, no, oh, no,” she did call

It went into sickening freefall

 

Its speed increased at an alarming rate

Meg prepared to face a horrible fate

 

Just an instant before the fatal crash

She awoke from the dream in a flash
