Right of Way

You can have every right in the world to be where you are and still die in an accident.

Right of Way

There’re two kinds of people on the road,
The takers and the givers.
For right of way, there is a law,
But it always gives me shivers.

It doesn’t matter who is right,
When meeting in the middle.
We all would be much safer,
If we all just gave a little.

Road rage is quite common
And it doesn’t prove a thing.
It only shows the world a fool,
Who thinks he is the king.

When someone says, “I have the right,”
It doesn’t take too long,
To figure out, he’s just as dead,
As if he had been wrong.

Sometimes it pays to be wrong.

Brings back sweet memories of "yonder", dear Don. Nobody is happier than me to see your picture. I just clicked and could not wait for it to come on the screen! Now, I am assured of giving my laughing muscles a good exercise while reading your humorous pieces. You are right even when you are wrong! siva

Hello Don welcome aboard my friend, your poem rocks my friend, and all too true: "He's just as dead as if he had been wrong." Thank you for sharing.
