'2010/01/29 Dodge Speeding Cars - Poem by Margaret Alice

I disrupt the flow of traffic when I arrive
full speed on the sidewalk as I make my
way home, the parking attendant jumps
into the street to stop passing cars so I
can run across without stopping to
check for traffic lights

He makes sure I don’t bump into people
sedately walking on the other side, I’ve
got everybody in line now they know me
at Kingsley, security guards jump aside
when I appear, waving goodbye
with a smile

While I thunder down the passage and
overtake everybody else, then crossing
the street without the previous surge
of adrenaline on my suicide run as I
dodge speeding cars, the parking
attendant in charge

It means I arrive earlier while leaving
later and later - it is such fun!
