Crushed Apples

The limo was speeding;
Revellers inside celebrating with
Champagne.

Locals were enjoying
Autumn leaves
At the Double Barrel Apple Company-
The two collided.

Maelstrom of lights, flashing
From emergency services
The clear up began;
Areas gradually open up
New York returning to normal.
