In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Breaking the Law.”
Frantically flying towards my destination
like an antelope fleeing a ravenous lion
desperately dancing through scorching savannah.
Hurried negligence yields to blaring siren
10 miles over (internal dialogue, “wow, that’s all?”)
elated to escape with only a warning.
