A budding career stopped short.
No longer will she deliver
songs to her audience. See,
she was injured, left gasping
for breath on a lone stretch
of road, car tilted on its side.
Fed by love of her fans–melodic
chimes to her ears–what a crime
that she can no longer shine
in the spotlight. Stopped
for a red light, her car
was rammed by a drunk driver.
Arguments on this case take place
on the first of next month. Driver is
a three-time offender
with a suspended license.
