Not Even a Whimper
By Charles J. Sloat


It was one of those mornings,
     Not unlike any other morning.

There it was.
It was morning.

Nothing stirred.
The streets were silent.

It was Tuesday.

The fact that it was Tuesday
     was not particularly striking,
for the day before had been Monday.

Yet, it seemed strangely inappropriate.

There was no panic.
There was no surprise.

They had seen it coming and were prepared.

Few had thoughts of running.
There was nowhere to go.

Most remained and waited.
Now it was here.
The day had finally come.

It was Tuesday.
