Crushed Skull

Such a beautiful day

What could possibly go wrong?

Hmmm…. flashing lights on the freeway

Only police with bodies on the ground

Should I stop?

A physician, I say – “Are you sure?” He said…

ID cleared the air

Such a peaceful scene – mom and dad as if asleep on the front seat

I knew better

A small child, on the back seat lay still

It was “just” a rear-ender, I thought

Precious memories of my own loved ones, flooded my thoughts

Funny, not a bit of blood to be seen anywhere

A touch to his small skull made it clear –

His life would soon be over

I wonder when I’ll stop feeling, the crushed skull, probably never…
