A flash of death
A black hotted up car revs right passed me
doing break neck speeds.
Got no time for waiting behind
and in an awful hurry it seems.
And in my mind there are images,
like a camera ,my mind is taking shots.
Telling me of ‘impending danger,’
And Oh! how I wish it would not .
For in my mind there is this car which suddenly turns into a coffin
as it speeds recklessly down the road.
A coffin on wheels that’s obeying
nobody’s road laws or codes.
Off to hell it seems,
and in one ‘hell of a hurry,’
filled with young people who look now like
dead and bloodied young Zombies.
Oh this image in my mind,
it gives me such a fright.
Black coffin speeding down the road into
the dark dark night.
