The Bumpy Ride

Still working on this one!

Driving in the ambulance, the scene playing on loop
My mom deliriously continues to ask, what’s the scoop?
She doesn’t remember what happened just one minute ago
How do I explain to her this irreversible blow?

My brain is running one hundred miles an hour
While I am strapped down without power.
The ambulance siren ringing as we race to the ER
As my mind is focused on the package in the other car.

My mom concussed laying by my side
While my life was just washed away by a thunderous tide.
Cords connected to monitors continually beeping

I ask the paramedics where they took him
