Blue Flashing Lights


The blue lights were flashing
In the road outside
Their urgent glow reflected
Off the walls inside
The atmosphere was subdued
No one seems concerned
They carried on buying drinks
With the money they have earned
Though they couldn't change a thing
They were very much aware
If you had walked in at this time
It would seem they didn't care
Accidents on city streets
Happen way too much
And it isn't just the family
Upon whom tragedy will touch
The emergency crew who respond
Don't know what they will face
But to the scene of the accident
In their vehicles they will race
Those inside, will a calm face show
As do those who attend outside
But no one can judge their feelings
If deep down, it's something they hide.
