There it goes again-
Speeding on by
The heartbeat pounding-
The squeal of the tires
As it races on by

Both purring-
As they gain speed
Not looking back-
They fade into the distance

Bounding, pounding, sounding-
Like a powerful vitality
Its paws strike the ground-
Its wheels turn up dust

Its engine comes to a stop-
Its pounding heartbeat lessens

The author's comments:
This is an extended metaphor about a cheetah and a car. It is an assignment for school and I wanted to send this in.
