A Child in Danger

A child is in danger
and a description
is sent out

gray Dodge Challenger
with Arizona plates or

black Audi A4 probably
heading for Mexico or

pink pajamas with rainbows
was carried away on foot or

needs his medicine or

her hair color when
last seen was purple

and my phone is
made to dance
and to sing the
modern day sound
of a child in danger
