Road Ragin’

Road Ragin’

Driving down the road 🛣️
Minding my own business
When buddy flips me the bird 🦜
I know free verse don’t rhyme
But this guy’s a real turd 💩
With my ego now bruised
My brain explodes 💥
And my senses go blind
What’s this clown’s 🤡
Problem anyway
Step on the gas ⛽
I weave through the rush
My window recessed 🪟
As I pull up to your ride
I start waving my fist 👊
Rhyme a curse at the lady inside
Don’t call the cops 🚓
That’s not meant for you

I got the wrong car 🚗
Mistaken identity I swear
I’m totally raging 🤬
As I punch it again
Blast past a school bus 🚌
This rhyming is insane
I catch a glimpse 👀
As you make the left
I race through the turn 🏎
And ‘round the bend
Caught in my web 🕸
️The thrill of pursuit gone
What do I do now ❓
I take a deep breath and
In a moment of zen
My road rage does pass
I rhyme one last time ⌚
And realise, I’m the real ass!

        😂 I would, but I am hoping to get published at some point so telling publishers I am entering terrible poetry contests might send the wrong message. 🤣🤣

    Fantastic, Greg! There were so many I thought might win; I had to slide yours down to a runner-up, though. And I’m sorry I haven’t slipped your late ones in. :/ You are one of the reasons I restarted the contest, though!

      It’s all good Chel. I’m just having fun participating and reading everyone else terrible takes. 😛 I’m usually in stitches when the bi-weekly results are posted! Glad I found that old post and helped plant the seed for a reboot. It is one of my blogosphere highlights.
