Buses Flying Like Devils

Deploring bus drivers for their speeds,
sure as they race giant hybrids
down the steep,
dark with sparkles
in shades of gray,
city streets, swarming with
the beautiful people,
they are going to murder,
an innocent pedestrian.
thirty-two oh eight, nineteen seventy-two,
thirty-four ninety-seven,
I take their numbers.
Surely, http://www.kcata.org
has the “How Am I
Driving” form, a public danger process,
but realizing I am only a child,
a mouse in a man’s world, I know
my grievances are not worthy,
and I absorb the deep,
hybrid air full of evil.

    Mmmmmmm. We would never end with the complaining if it got us somewhere. Mmmmmmm.

      Yes, it seems many think that complaining does get us somewhere!

    You are really not talking about buses at all. I see it.

    “Deploring bus drivers’ for their speed machines,
    sure as they race giant hybrid schemes
    down the steep, deep
    dark with sparks…”

    I like this poem. it was fun to tinker with…
    I like the bus.

    Oh no, other Carl, Carl is definitely talking about buses. I’m going to be thinking about this poem on my walk today instead of the usual expletives when the buses are flying like devils around me.
