Watch Your Speed

Photo by Tim Samuel on Pexels.com

A high risk decision
Thrown through shattered window
Breathing slowly withers
Blood giggles absurd face paint

Chest compressions all but fail
Mouth to mouth harder than bagpipes
Wounds begin leering grins
And yellow fat shines sunrise

A crimson river slowly flows
Past nosy neighbours
Caressing careless feet
Eyes blank towards clouded sky
Face a poker game expression
Birds shrill in funeral song

Life goes on
It never ends
Until the next car
Fails to stop

This song is amazing
