Do you ever get frustrated in traffic and make a fool of yourself? Well you just gotta know that I do.

Life On the Freeway...Volvo Ocean Racer XC90...Poem #One


Volvo Ocean Racer XC90

I’m like a shooting star!
I’ve got three-hundred and eleven horse power
Tucked neatly
Under my hood

She’ll go a hundred and sixty,
Without a worry
And
When I step on the pedal
I’m gone in a hurry,
I’m down the road man,
Catch me if you can
I’m a speeding bullet, man...Duck!
I’m flying low.

Poem #Two...Driving in the Jungle


Driving in the Jungle

He feels easy in his skin,
His leopard spots polished and shining.

His feels alone in his jungle,
His steady eyes transfixed
On his game, on the cars
And the traffic in front of him.

There is No Surprise


There is no surprise here,
As he feels driving is better
Than being held prisoner
In the house on Park Street,

After all, he is a jungle cat, you know.
Strutting his hours away
Buried in the darkness
Of his speed-king dreams.
Needing the feel of wind
On his face,

A Break in the Traffic


But now he spies a small break
In the evening traffic
And he springs for it,
Like the cat that he is.
His four mechanical feet spinning,
All eight cylinders purring,
Watching as the smoke dissolves behind him
And he is gone, gone, gone.

Cursing at the Traffic


Until at last he is cursing
At the slow moving creature
Who just pulled in front of him,
Baring his further escape.
So he slams on his brakes
And then the gas
And as he passes
He lifts
His one sharp and polished claw
And hangs it high in the air

As he goes flying bye.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

Thanks Shamarie, I have been having trouble with the old computer so I took the first thing I came to in the hope it wouldn't crash again.

No...Really LeRain, the only time I took it over 85 was a mistake some place in Kansas. When I looked down the speedo said 130 and I could of sworn it was more like 90.

Carol, I think you would just love it in the jungle. I know I did, I mean when people weren't shooting at me.
