Airbags Deployed

Way ahead

was dark

drear

dismal.

Couldn’t see

for miles

for fog

for yards.

Rearview

mirror

wipers

not a thing

was working.

Steering

blindly really

auto on.

Road bumps

turbulence

or what

you will

were all

too willing

too available

too there

just there

right on it

Thud!

Like that.

Visibility

was down

a downer

anywhere

was nowhere

seen.

 

Where

clarity

the RAC

some squad

travellers

still the

motor

running

though

seatbelts

fastened

odds were

looking

dire.

Pitstops

on the way

no chance

or chances

risky.

Pelted

window

panes

pained

by tears

blurring

But miles

of belted

journeys

undertaken

desire

to land

to reach

Attitude

Kick some ass today, it’s fun!

Go on, try it, everyone.

Next time something gets your goat,

Grab its metaphoric throat,

Tell it, ‘No!’ Be loud and clear.

Show your mettle, have no fear.

Whip its butt for all your worth,

Be the boss of all your stuff.

Thoughts and feelings, they’re the worst,

Get control, their bubble burst.

Some folk too that won’t be named,

Face them up, let them be shamed.

Bullies, buggers, bums that need it

Kick their butts, just don’t concede.

Be your truth, yourself, with ease,

Knee to groin works too with these.

Masters of our destiny,

No thought control, a new release.

Up and at it, that’s the way!

Kick some butt, with love, today. 🙂
