April Nineteenth

An absent daydream
Turned into a waking nightmare.
One moment coasting along
To the
Beat of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun",
And the next coasting
Past the pole and
Off the road.
Rended metal and a
Giant explosion.
Ears ringing!
But from where?
A yell
And then running
Out of the car
Away from the disaster
Back onto the unexpectedly perilous road.
Too many people.
Too many questions,
And too many empty undeserved accusations.
Too much pain and
Too many tears
On one used-to-be peaceful Spring day.
