The scene was one to behold
Cars scattered in the middle of the road
Windscreens broken, glasses cracked
Children screaming, as if attacked
Sirens wailed as emergency crew appeared
Trying to attend to those injured
Police looking for who started the chaos
There she is, a slight, young lass
Sobbing and weeping as she blubbers along
Trying to explain what exactly went on
Whilst driving and texting her partner in life
She lost her footing in a moment of strife
Hitting the accelerator instead of the brake
A moment that cost her, a big mistake
It was but accidental, cried she out loud
But t’wasn’t the case for the police, nor to all around
So many hurt, so much blood shed
If only she hadn’t driven while texting her boyfriend
This has been written for One Single Impression prompt no. 158. 
It is also written as an awareness to not text and drive! Or for that matter, do not talk on your handset and drive!

Until next time,

    Thanks Prats…will check out your post on teh same…I had a near miss once
    when I answered my mobile phone while driving. Since then I don’t use my
    phone in the car unless I am at a red light.
