What sound terrifies you most? What sound terrifies you so much that you don't want anyone else to know that fear?

The most dreadful sound

But put it into a button

Forget those fucking

STAPLES buttons

This isn’t a game


There is no label on it

Just the big red button

The unknown

You’re curious


Force everyone to press it

Releasing the sound

They fear most

At the biggest gathering of their lives…

With family

The office

Or at a wedding


For some…

It’s the fart button


It’s their mother calling them

And yet others…

It’s a clown’s laugh


And as you press it

You can’t help

But stand there

You can’t scream

You’re just waiting

For the horror to stop

As the whole office

Looks up

Or the family from the table

Or the wedding

And you’re the bride


And you’re looking around

Like – it wasn’t me

Your hands are up in defeat

Your face in shock


But it was you, wasn’t it?

This was your fear

And now everyone knows

Your weakness



Fuck that

I ain’t telling you…
