“The Stuntman”. (Odes on the Roads #01)

Rain, cold, unrelenting,

Makes the blacktop so slick.

Drive safe and get there.

Don’t not get there quick.

Traffic, slow moving.

It’s all red tail lights up front.

In your rearview a youngster

Driving like a


Man from LA,

Weaving in, dodging out,

In his bright blue Imprezza

With the pram handle stuck out.

He’s less Holly, more Holmewood,

Driving like a right dick.

He’s not safe, he won’t get there

And he’ll get there real quick.
