In a Hurry?

by w.j.debi

I was doing sixty
when you went zooming by.
What could be so urgent?
My, oh, my, oh, my.

Arriving at the stoplight,
"My goodness," I reply,
"One car ahead of me?"
My, oh, my, oh, my.

Light turns green, off you rush.
Your speed, it seems so high.
At next light you idle.
My, oh, my, oh, my.

A third time, then a fourth.
A pity, though you try,
speed is not your forte.
My, oh, my, oh, my.

One more light, I turn left.
I guess this is goodbye
as you sit there waiting.
My, oh, my, oh, my.
