What Would They Do?

If a person knew

they were to die in ten minutes 

without pain or discomfort, just drop dead,

how would they spend it?

Would they save a child from the burning building across the street?

Would they call their father and apologize for everything?

Would they listen to their favorite song?

Would they hug their son or daughter for a short time?

Would they donate their bank account's balance to charity?

Would they protest against injustice?

Would they tell that person that they love them?

Would they eat all the junk food they want without caring about weight?

Would they read a poem or a short story?

Would they lie down on the grass and look at the stars?
