A hydrant too far.










Damn drat and blast, I am caught on the wire
Far too much haste, now I’ll tear my attire.
You ask me; ‘Why run?’
I say; ‘Not for fun-
You’d hurry too, if your pants were on fire!’

Thanks again Tess for another interesting prompt.

  4. Uniquely you (as always.) Great title reminding me of a favorite film from the 70s ... "A Bridge Too Far" ~ and its star studded cast.
