He stood motionless in the empty square

where many had been standing with him

what had caused them to panic and run

from a noisy happy throng to no one

alarms sounded loudly their pitch so high

knowing he should move as security went by!


A little dazed he followed the rest to the outside

where crowds huddled in anticipation

smoke could be seen billowing from within

as they were held back from the fire

the flames emited from a small clothing store

thick smoke began to fill the top floor!


The fire brigade were soon on the scene

police helped those gathered at the entrance

luckily everyone had been evacuated

so no casualties were thankfully reported

panic had been averted so everything serene

such a great conclusion to what could have been!


Onlookers watched as the situation was quelled

then slowly dispersed from the shopping area

as many emotions were expressed that day

for most sensibility was certainly on display!
