Top Gear – (Six Sentence Story #153)
Tis comfortable to be in cruise control,
But do take note of complacency creep.
Keep a keen look out for that darn pothole,
That’ll swallow you in a micro-sleep.
It is easy to miss all the danger signs;
That mid-lane hugger, the rear boot flasher,
Myriad red lights, and double white lines,
Those bums you’d call a fast-peddle-thrasher.
Such is the right time to shift down a gear,
(Or regret no action with much remorse.)
Power the motor, and prepare to veer,
Kickstarting the heart of the driving force.
Avoid the dangers; make a correction;
Nothing wrong with a change in direction.
