His Plan

In a moment
Everything can change.
Some hoodlums stalking a parking lot,
Fire sneaking through wiring,
A deer bounding from the woods,
Each bringing potential
For mayhem and harm.

For some reason
I bought a truck
A couple of years back.
A lifetime of riding low
Changed by a moment of curiosity.
Last night the reason
For my changed driving altitude
Was revealed
As my wife met up
With one of those daring deer.

The deer lost.
The truck can be fixed.
My wife was a little shaken, not stirred,
And safe, which is all that matters.

I’ve wondered why I switched
To a big grandpa truck
When everything else
In my life is downsizing.
No I know.

Thank you for the guidance.
