Is It Safe? - Poem by Paul S Gregory

That dangling wire
Swinging like Tarzan's rope.
Is it safe?

The dog over the road,
Barking at everything is sight.
Is it safe?
Going for a swim,
After you've had lunch.
Is it safe?
When asked by the hairdresser "What style? "
You reply "Whatever you like."
Is it safe?
Standing up on the bus
While it's still in motion.
Is it safe?
Having five minutes more
After your alarm has gone off.
Is it safe?
Being honest with a woman when asked
"Does my bum look big in this? "
Is it safe?
Crossing the road
while the lights are still on green.
Is it safe?
Whilst keeping your eyes open.
Is it safe?
This journey we're all part of
called life.
Is it safe?
