Golden Maserati

May 27, 2015

We were walking along the road
In the quiet dusky light
Robins sang, frogs croaked
In the evening with delight.

When we heard
The roar of a mighty engine
Back beyond the curve
Still far, far out of sight.

The roar sped nearer
Louder, round the corner
Charging cross the country road
A blaze of gold appeared in our sight.

Pistons pounding, wheels spinning
A golden Maserati flashed by
Neighbour’s chickens squawked in horror
Our dog cringed, fearing for his life.

My husband muttered
Something like
“A idiot racing a golden Maserati
On a country road tonight”.

He was gone in a second
Like a flash of golden light
No regard for any other
Driving his golden Maserati tonight.

Only feeling Maserati power
Roaring by on a quiet night
Driving a golden Maserati reckless
Thru quaint country life.

Too fast to see his face
Slumped down with little grace
A flash of golden auto
Flew pass us that night.

A golden Maserati
With a idiot at the wheel
Roared by us
Disappearing out of sight.

I Saw Death Today

September 4, 2012

I saw death today
And it wasn’t far away
Shattered lives, writhing pain
Ashen grey trying to focus
Make sense of mistakes made
Tragic, senseless crash
I saw, I saw death today.

Pieces strewn all over
Stricken faces numb in horror
Helpless, terror I saw
Souls broken beyond repair
Flashing sirens, horrid
Screaming lights rushing there.
Death hovered, waiting
Waiting stalking there.

I saw death today.
