One Single Impression: Shift in Time

A Down Shift in Time

Caught between the eighteen wheeler
and a Ford truck with horse trailer—
he hit the gas, went down to third
and made his shift in time, superb.

Where was his hot Ferrari steed
when in his scary time of need?
He pulled that Caddy to the side
a prayer of thanks to God he said.

Now driving home, he changed his course,
he's glad to be alive no worse.
Making that down shift changed his mind
Las Vegas was a waste of time.
