Death of a Toy: Haiku Troika



O evil fire truck,
At last, you have met your match:
Down the hill full speed.

Was it the voice that
died? The voices? Immortal
damn robot voices?


The steering column
gave way, for want of a rack-
and-pinion system.

    Homeland Security funds are on the way to replace the fire truck. Hats off to the heroes who didn't make it out of the crash.
