The Ambulance!

The ambulance sped along the busy road

intent on getting to the call.

A pitiful cry received that faded away

prompting an urgent response.

No location given traced by the signal

never this tense as a rule.

 

Without details from the distressed caller

apprehension was higher.

Potentially a trap they were heading

part of the risk they took.

Moments later coming upon the scene

both alert and keen.

 

Nothing could be seen to indicate a problem

on this isolated road.

The ambulance crew unsure what to do

had it been a hoax.

Informing control of the current situation

filled with consternation.

 

Told them the caller had contacted once again

even more distressed.

Baffled noting the silence then saw smoke

and pungent lingering odour.

It seemed to be moving as if it was guiding

was the truth nearby hiding?

 

No choice compelled to follow the phenomena

though ordered back to base.

Continuing cautiously into a large open field

drawn along a thick hedge row.

Where together they found a burnt out truck

in swampy ground stuck.

 

Nothing could be done for the person within

then the smoke swirled.

From in its midst there stood a woman

both retreated in shock.

After that moment no more calls received

solving the mystery achieved!

 

It was some while later confirmed that inside

a woman had died!

 

The Paramedics didn’t mention the apparition

the conclusion a tragic accident!

 

Nobody answered the question who telephoned?
