11.20-11.26: Terminal Velocity

Do not pull the ripcord;
You have yet to reach your peak.
Wait until your body reaches
Terminal velocity.
The plane is long behind you,
And the Earth is crawling fast,
But don’t be frightened, don’t be scared,
For you’ve received what you have asked:
A death defying journey,
One that soon will be complete.
All your life you climbed in alt
To jump at 13,000 feet.

The time is now, pull your chute!
But nothing will disperse.
You have half a minute to live your life
Before you’re swallowed by the dirt.
