Sympathy Brakers (Oh, Please!)

Sympathy braking,
Lickety Spit;
Backing up traffic
From Waco to the Oak Hill Split.

Cop car lights
On the Northbound lane.
Sympathy brakers
Driving the Southbound insane.

Sympathy braking
Makes traffic slow, oh…so…slow.
WHAT are you stopping for?!
Well…you never know.

Car boiling over
In the right shoulder.
Sympathy braker in the Leftmost
Innocent of anything ever bolder.

New 80 MPH limit
On that ole toll road.
Sympathy braker
Turning me into an old slow toad.

Cuz of a flashing ambulance
Going the OTHER way!
We slow behind the sympathy braker:
What can I say?

Sympathy braking,
Lickety Spit;
Backing up traffic
From Waco to the Oak Hill Split.

Sympathy braking
Makes traffic slow, oh…so…slow.
WHAT are you stopping for?!
Well…you just never know.

Oh, please!

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
