The Action Took Only 40 Minutes - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

The same act and the same spot,
The same love and the same kiss;
But the action took only 40 minutes!
With touching words and horrible facts,
And like a Heavy-Duty-Land-Cruiser!

Light, night, right, bright, height, might, fright, plight!
But the water for the elephant wasn't enough;
And like the last flower in the land of war! !
Dip, hip, nip, lip, gip, quip, sip, tip, zip, yip;
And like the last flowers in the land of roses,
But the action took only 40 minutes!
And he was dead and gone too soon.
