Hit from behind while parked 
My neck craned to see what!

Sliding out the driver’s side,
A voice shouted “He hit you from the side.”

Slowly an elderly masked man slithered over
“No damage. I’m picking up my lunch.”

Without the stranger’s intervention 
I would be at a loss what happened.

Old man was not eager to own up.
No damage he said.
Accountability and trust don’t count.

Only a scrape on the tire rim
but fear for decency out there
concerns me.
