Walla Walla, WA 99362
I got your call today
"I'm on my way," you said.
"Talk to you later, alligator."
I got another call today
I wondered what had took you so long
Then I realized it wasn't you
Do you know someone who owns a 64' Ford, ma'am?
It's brown with washington license plates.
No, I replied. Why?
Ma'am, the person that was in the truck is dead
She didn't have any id.
Only a piece of paper with your number on it.
Do you have any idea who it could be?
"Describe her," I screamed.
"Is-- I mean, was, she blonde with blue jeans."
Yes ma'am, he replied.
"What happened," I screamed.
I have every right to know
Ma'am, I'm sorry to tell you this.
But it looks like your friend swerved to avoid
Intoxicated people and somehow rolled the truck
She was thrown from it and hit head first
Pronounced dead at the scene
She wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
Ma'am, Ma'am are you there?
"Yes, but I have just one more question"
How bad is the truck?
Would she have lived, with any sort of luck?
I don't think so, ma'am.
The cab was crushed almost beyond recognition.
Do you have any other questions?
"Yes, actually. Is it possible to see her?"
Ma'am, he replied. I dont think you want to.
Chalk her death up to another vicious drunk
I'm truly sorry. Do you know where her family is?
"Yes, I'm her sister. The only family remaining."
Time flies? Say it not so, time stays we go.
