Just Another Day

Sun slicing through dusty window,
As I begin my working day,
Coffee, honeyed toast, freshly squeezed orange,
While browsing a local rag.

Pleasant drive to my office,
Tail end of morning rush hour,
Stereo playing popular tunes,
As I cruise amongst fellow travellers.

Morning turns to lunch,
Turns to afternoon and finally,
Time to leave, another day done,
Another journey home ahead.

Out I stroll to my car,
Never to reach it,
As speeding vehicle slams
Me down and drags my corpse.

Striking final paragraph - pardon the pun - especially "drags my corpse - how gruesome.

I loved that, good use of crush without evening using the word.

I like what xegbp said, "good use of crush without using the word.

"He said 'crush' without even moving his lips." (apologies to Stanley Bagshaw's gran) I get to this site too infrequently these days, alas.

Ish - no worries :)
Come if/when you want, always welcome. No offence if you ever stop completely...
Though I would miss our occasional discussions...

Very nice reference to crush without actually using the word.

Yowza. I kept waiting for the word "crush" to appear, but it never did and then it was over (literally for the voice of the piece).

Very creative and unusual!

Mine is posted, too. C'mon on over.

Hilarious (in a horrible, crushing way). Your surprise ending made me laugh out loud (at the disastrous demise after such a routine day).

I will now proceed more cautiously through parking lots... ;)

Wow, I didn't even think of that particular use of the word! Dense as I am, it took me a while to understand how it related to this week's SS theme, so I really enjoyed that!
