Driving Freedom [honk...Hooonk! ! ].......[independent Driver's Thoughts; Humor/Humour] - Poem by Bri Edwards

Honk! Honk! Hooonk! ! Yes indeed, I just love to blow my horn;
it’s part of Driving Freedom..... the most fun I’ve had since being born.
But some people are such killjoys. Over “rules” their minds do linger.
In response to their “rules”..... and their dirty looks, I raise my middle finger!

If I want to spin my wheels till they smoke, so what? Forget “air pollution”.
If I can’t have freedom on the roads, why’d we fight The American Revolution?
Yeah, I’m driving in the left lane of a two lane road. (it’s practice) Who’s caring?
When I visit Dublin this Fall I plan to drive; I don’t want those Knuckleheads staring.

And I never use my turn signals..... so stay out of my way, Stupid!
Otherwise I may pretend you’re a Heart, and I’ll pretend I’m Cupid.

I guess by now you’ve gotten the idea. It’s MY road to drive....AS I PLEASE.
And rest assured, if I were Captain of a ship..... I would rule the Seas!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i was NOT driving while writing this! ! ! but it's not a BAD idea. i don't really recall how i got started writing this, but i am almost amazed at how many changes i made today,20 days after i penned it. don't worry; it is not entirely true. :)

    I like your poem Captain Bri. Rules are often so over rated. And to 'have freedom on the roads' is the American way.

    Drive carefully when your in Dublin, I was just there, they are pretty crazy drivers there and they do all drive on the wrong side of the road.

    My favorite line is
    Otherwise I may pretend you’re a Heart, and I’ll pretend I’m Cupid.

    You can borrow my bow if you want :)

    I wonder how many hundreds of dollars you are giving away from your wallet every year as penalty for violating road rules!

    Your purse getting drained is OK as it is your money, the way as you think the road is yours. But the people who are not so depressed with life and who do not contemplate on a suicide will flee away from your path and you will never get a chance to play a Cupid to any sweet heart! ! Enjoyed the humour! !

    The road is yours for free
    And so is the sky above
    But me no drive along with thee
    'cause I wanna live now......

    Honk Honk...Good poem sir and welcome to my page.
