Save the Miles

“Your father’s days are lost to you. This is the time here to do what you will do.” – John Mellencamp

 

Driving around Lake Sunshine
In saving miles-a-thon,
She unexpectedly ventured online.
In wealth and felt drawn
To a high social newsroom,
Today’s forecast of jail.
Heard in this foreign room,
Approaching the cell with bail,
They should be sleeping in-
Their dignity, the others
Came along for the ride, all-in
Very aggressive brothers,
She wasn’t supposed to come.
That’s the bitter end-
Of the Indians income
Trapped in a mirror, rear-end
Of a train on a bank,
For years at the station, ascend
Swords in graves under a tank…
Fighting the ghosts of pretend…
