A Speed Fiend


Epitaph


Be forewarned
On the road I was way in front
I weaved in and out of traffic
Get out of my way!
I was the fastest,
a speed hero once before

(140 characters)

Inspired by Micro Fiction # 60

Dear Hank,
That's beautiful one and most appropriate for those who treat the roads as a racing track.

Brings a smile at first then a frown of self consciousness and self-guilt, hehehe.

Ah yes, too many speed heroes end up where this one did... The epitaph is hopefully a warning to some. Well done, this micro tale.
