Breaking the Law

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.
