She sped down the road
Past the state cop
Who didn’t seem to care
Didn’t make her stop.

She zoomed down the lane
Past the yellow eyed dog
Who was too lazy to bark
And slept like a log.

Rushed by the pond
No fishermen did see
He was tying up a fly
Leaning on a willow tree.

He was making a wish
And trusting on luck
To finally catch the big one
Hiding in the dark muck.

She flew by the church
Which sat on a hill
A place for funerals or to wed
But the air there was still.

No notice of the park
Music in the air
She missed the gazebo
And the band playing there.

The people were gathered
Beneath the oak trees
Enjoying their dinner
Waving away the honey bees.

She looked straight ahead
Eyes on the road
Never saw the sun set
Colors of red and gold.

She lived like she drove
All furious and fast
Missed the peace and beauty
No time to make it last.

She should’ve slowed down
To take the time
To see the world around her
Maybe read a good rhyme.
