The Boy Racer

He revved his throttle loudly
He donned sunglasses on
And ramped his music up so high
So we could share his song

He pumped the gas quite heavily
Exhaust fumes belting out
And with a screech of rubber tyres
He raced his car about

He sensed the open highway
The gap in traffic too
The hole in car park exit
Through which he then just flew

With shoppers knocked sideways standing
And trolleys in a spin
It’s wondered who he was racing
What game he hoped to win

Then as he saw the lights turning
And tried to pip to post
He was held up by amber turn
The thing he hated most

And sat there on the bumper
Of another car it’s true
He ranted and he raved at wheel
Until green light shone through

Then with a roar of engines
A stench of burnt out fuel
He sped off down the road so fast
But left looking a fool!

Man On A Phone

Let me tell you a story
Of a man on a phone
He walked down the street
By himself all alone

With head dropped so forward
His arms up to grip
The object – his smart phone
Lest dare it might slip

His eyes were affixed
His gaze held quite true
As he opened his apps
And his messages too

He scrolled down through Facebook
And posted a tweet
All along as he walked
With his phone down the street

And not once it is said
Did he look where he trod
The man on a mission
With a steady plod plod

And then he arrived
At a curbside by road
And stepped off the pavement
Not changing his mode

He walked out not looking
And then with a bang
With a crash and collision
His phone left to hang

Left to hang from his body
Blood pouring from head
The man on his phone
His status: “I’m dead”
