10/52: Night fright

A great big monster moved slowly through the trees one night.
Gleaming lights and swooshing noises slinked in through my window.
Silent voices rose from little worker men swarming around the slow and heaving beast.
Foul-smelling steam bellowed out from its underside.
The ground trembled under its weight.
I hid under my sheets as it sluggishly inched its way past my dwelling.
The next day I realised the frightening beast had merely been
a friendly giant, as gentle as they come.
It had left behind a brand new road. Just for me, I'm sure.
Man, I love driving on freshly laid asphalt.
