Hoax: A Skipper Tale


Vacation is coming

time to drive my car

Piper thinks she is driving

the destination is far


The car is packed

time to get in

sitting in the back

opportunity is thin


Then it happens

Piper sees where I dropped her keys

the car is running

I jump to the driver’s seat on my knees


Into the driver’s seat

locking the door in an instant

steering wheel in front of me

moving the car a short distance


Piper running

rushing with the key

pulling the emergency brake

stopping the car immediately


Jumping to the back seat

relishing the moment at hand

thrill of driving a car

my hoax is legendary across the land
