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…
