I run out the door, Down to the street, Watching the pavement slide by, Right under my feet. I dive for the car, And scramble inside, Then slam my car, Right into drive. I don’t buckle in, But is that a sin? An emergency at the brink, I’ll be fine, don’t you think? My hand on the wheel, My foot to the gas, I speed down the road, Looking for somewhere to pass. A text pops up, I look down, And that’s when I hear, The most terrible sound. A screeching, A crying, A screaming, A dying. A beep from the floor, A text on the screen. “The baby is here!” “She looks so serene.”
