Today I had a bit of an accident,
This I know for my truck now has a dent,
The young girl who hit me, no injuries for us both,
She seemed to cry, and was upset, and kinda scared at the same time…
She was a kid, seventeen, no less,
I did my best to remind her, it was an accident, no more,
She did not do it on purpose, and I understood,
Why let it get you down, I really must herein confess?
Her car took the brunt of the damage,
Lost her front bumper, my rear tire only blown,
On went my spare, and away I went to finish my job,
Oh of course, after the cops had their time with paperwork, so don’t sob…
I felt kinda sorry for her, this young kid, seems so long since my first wreck,
I hate to think what her insurance rates will be like, but what can I do?
We had to call the cops, we had to do the right thing, what more can anyone do?
