Fear In Gear

By 10th March 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

I pulled into the kerb
To fiddle with the radio
And then as I looked up
Some youths had crowded round the car;
A hand upon the handle.
Instinctively, through fear,
I quickly locked my door
And slammed the car in gear.
Then when I sped away
I think I drove on someone’s foot.
I really didn’t care;
I just got out of there.
