Egress Checklist

The exits are marked, and well-lit, with no hinges
Improperly set or located, or stuck;
You won't be obstructed, however you go,
And you’ll opt for the easiest route, with your luck.
The ramp slope is gentle, the path it is clear---
Whether danger is present or not, there's no doubt
The deep fear is bubbling, it’s time to escape,
For this is your way:  Out.
