I is for Inverted Refrain

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows three orange traffic cones placed on the road. There is ice on the road surface and foot prints can be seen on the ice.

They decided to go away

for the Easter weekend by car

accident on the motorway

two cars collided without care

snowed all evening and road icy

and with fog the road not so clear

Police and ambulance were called

traffic ensued not a good scene

ever so slowly cars were hauled

thankfully no victims had been

still snowing they wiped their screen

they’d be late, the hotel was called

They got out of the motorway

the country side they carried on

hungry and tired such a doomsday

and there infront a marathon

stopped the car and they both yawn

not a lot to do the day’s grey

By the time they reached the hotel

both were tired and just stayed in bed

ordered room service and doorbell

pasta with cheese, wine and some bread

tiramisu such great spread

tomorrow accident not dwell*
