One wake up call’s a call for all
To get prepped and dressed to trek to Jacob’s Hall
During light snowfall in full they march
One foot apart in squads from the quads
In a rhythmically stepping progression
With each step stepping the previous step
Left, left right left
Go the orphan kids in this orphanage
When fate serves a cold plate you end up here
When questioned a child will tell
We’re treated well
Each day a family interviews at least twelve
With the returning few from the pack removed
These kids anticipate and wait for the men in black suits
Hoping to be chosen
But not really knowing where none of them are going

The black suits have selected the selected
Then they exit out the exit as they venture towards the entrance
To a sector that is sectioned into sections of desks
On which are kits and homeless men that they never met
With no explanations mentioned
The prompter says his sentence
Remember Execute Forget
All smiles were unfixed
As they forward the desks with the kits
Hear the click, clack, click
Assemble the weapon to M one six
Lock, load, trig, grip
One shot, one hit
Some are shot, some live
Then all hear “Forget”
The suits remove six then kill the remaining men
Then the successful ten will be tested again

The successful ten progressed again
But their success will depend on how they conquest the end
Remember Execute Forget again
They drift and then they slip right in
They get two picks, a map to get, and ten clicks
And each give in tools they should use
A bomb with time fuse
Eight click, nine click, ten click
They shoot into this maze that they navigate with grace
All pitfalls, trips and traps, and prey they evade
Then they come to a lake before the place they should be
They see lumber and debris that lay upon this beach
Without one word heard they concur and agree
Before the bomb destructs and blasts
They must construct a raft with the tools and trash they have
To complete the task
One is built with master craft to sail and ride to the other side
And there they’ll divide like the plan was devised
The first five will go inside
Planting the C4 on the third and ninth floor
In enters two more
One to explore and keep safe the briefcase
While the other seeks the face to help escape
One remains at the lake’s bank for swift escape
Two lay hidden for killing any that lead chase
They head back across the lake
Successful mission was a hit
Recognition as a gift
Successful ten had made it in
But then they all hear “Forget”
