'Twas a night during the summer, when on the second floor
The girls were talking, giggling, and more.
I in my nightgown and he starting to snore
Had just settled down on the futon by the door.
On top of us the window broke like a flash,
We could smell exhaust and were covered in glass.
Mom sprung from the bed to tell us the news,
A car drove through the house and the driver smelled of booze.
As I gathered my thoughts and turned around,
Down the hall my Dad came with a bound.
He whistled and shouted to the Mustang driver;
"Turn off the engine and call a firefighter!"
When what to my wondering eyes should see,
A fireman, a policeman, and an EMT.
They said we were in shock,
All i could do was listen, I could not talk.
Write a poem about a memory you sometimes wish would disappear.
