I am bound for home,
A little after midnight
After an earthly nightly owl,
Over wines, songs and dances
The wee hours till we adjourned.
While driving in a wooded area
When a sudden downpour
With a big thunder climaxed me around
With total darkness and a blackout prevailed
Then, my car slowed to a stop
And stranded in the middle of nowhere
Oh, I have an empty fuel, my goodness!
This very untimely and unfortunate
Opportune misgiving on my part!
Thinking of some of my remedial intuitions
My cell phone is dead!
At last, a car light at my back
Perhaps a law enforcer
Or, maybe somebody came to a rescue
A loud knock at my left window
Pointing my flashlight where the knock came
I saw a… lady in a white gown smiling at me!!
