Coffin of steel and wire.
A towering terror spire.
The weight limit reached.
One rider steps off.
One percent golden living.
Called back to the lobby,
For next rising mission.
So much anxiety,
With each passing ding.
Next time take the stairs,
Instead of dying.
A very special thanks to Elevator Eva, all dinged up.

"Look at God within yourself, how 'God is Light.' For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light. He manifests the Light of his Nature to those who love Him in all the worlds…" (John of Dalyatha, Syriac Mystic)
