Crash & Burn
I got into an accident last night.
This was what happened, in slow motion like a dramatic scene..
Guy makes a U-turn into my lane right in front of me without looking.
I think, "I can't stop in time, I can't stop in time".
I slam down the brakes, I slam down the horn. Tyres screech. Road eats rubber.
I crash into the back left of his car.
I swerve up the high curb. Crash into a Madagascar palm sitting pretty beside the road, bringing it down with me.
I am just awaiting the shattering of glass, me knocked out, waiting waiting for my head to be blown apart.
I slide to a halt and look around, see no glass on my face, see I am awake and conscious.
No one was hurt. Thank God…
