The accident

John Prine's The Accident has been running through my head all day today. Especially the last verse...

Pamela hit her head on the mirror
Mrs Wlaker got a bump on the knee
the man hit himself
in the face and said
"Why does this happen to me?"
the neighbors came out
and they gathered about
saying "Hey! who hit who anyway?"
and the police arrived
at a quarter to five
and pronounced all the victims "Okay"

My feet went out from under me and I banged my head on the sidewalk, knocked the breath right out of me. I'll be sporting a lovely egg on my noggin tomorrow night for the opening at Digging Pitt.
