.5. Amber What Poem by David Threadgold

.5. Amber What

Rating: 4.8

Amber lights what do they do
Will drivers ever know?
Not many think they mean to stop
Most think they mean to go

When traffic lights start changing
From red the engines roar
A little amber twinkle
Make them rev their engines more

Cars shoot off like missiles
They seem to go ballistic
How could they know the road is clear?
Have they fitted in-car mystic?

On the other side the lights now change
To the amber from the green
It’s an automatic speed increase
They pretend they haven’t seen

On the gridlines in the middle
Metal piles up what a shambles
It happens when your luck runs out
If you’re taking amber gambles

Dave this is the best and most sensible warning I have read on traffic options. Too many of us need more care and this is a great reminder, put in such a way it could almost be memorised. A good ten's worth from Fay.
