Roads – What Is Dangerous On The Road? - Poem by Paul Warren

I was sitting in my office and had an email reply
Someone who decided that he wanted to know why
That we did not focus on other deadly things to say
And not talk about using mobile phones whilst driving away

I know that it’s the things that people do each day
That can be the dangerous ones driving today
You see crashes on roads happen whilst driving
Mostly because your attention is waning

And I remember a fatal crash one day
When a mother wanted to change CDs whilst looking away
And at the end telling the husband the devastating news
That it was a CD that gave death a chance to choose.

    The poem aptly draws attention to our behavioural follies and demands immediate rectification. It is a matter of life and death in a swish. Life is precious. Thanks, Paul. (Report) Reply
