ROAD RAGE

On my way home
from work
Driving 60
in a 55
center lane
Some idiot Loser
in a
metallic blue
'99 Mustang convertible
License
"IM HOT"
no directional
cuts me off
from the right
leaving just
enough room
to breathe
between us.

I slam on
my brakes
hoping to smash
his back end
anyway
but I don't
too Bad
I watch
him pull
farther away
Idiot
Directionals
aren't an
Option
and doesn't
it say somewhere
in that stupid
drivers manual
there should
be 50 feet
between you
and the car
you pull in front of?!
where did he get
his license from
anyway
a CrackerJack box?
Idiot
why do people
drive like that
where are the
cops
when these
violations happen!
I've been
violated
Dammit!

Idiot loser #2
comes
Screeching
up behind me
again
no directionals
a weaver
in and out
lane to lane
lane jumper
there he goes
left lane
passing me
Good.
SHIT!
I slam
on my brakes
and lean on
the horn
What the *#%#!
You blind?!
Damn Idiot
can't do that
to ME
I swerve
into the
left lane
my heart pounding
faster than the
tick of the directional
I hit the gas
65 - 70 - 75
80 miles an hour
I can barely
see him
in the
passenger mirror
I swerve
no directional
into the
center lane
He'll learn
HIS lesson . .

S s s C r e e e c h!
BAM!
But not like
I've learned mine.
