Accidents happen, but cars and Nature do not seem to get along...

Cars & Trees Don’t Mix Well…


Cars and trees don’t make good bedfellows,

Black tire marks on shoulders, from brakes being slammed,

Bushes and trees knocked down or otherwise no more round,

Those same bushes in dire need,

By Mom Nature to be replaced and repaired,

After a car did come tearing it from the ground, there to bleed…


Oil & gasoline, a cars lifeblood, seeping into the ground,

Fouling the aquifer, animals should not partake,

Their little tummies with tighten, and lose, they will their fur,

Gas & oil the worst of man’s machines, killing the grass, we can’t hear it’s dying                                            sound…


Nothing man can do, accidents do happen, sleepy drivers, drunks,

Or just a mistake on the road of life, trying to avoid skunks…

Which is why I walk everywhere unless someone offers me a ride to where I need to go (and then it is with people I know!)! Plus I can't even afford a car, not even a DEAD one! ONE good thing about saves on gas, and it's good for you! Also don't have to worry about insurance or inspection stickers...but it sure is a pain in the ass in the cold or when it's stormin' outside; don't like thinking about walking in a storm using a crutch...LIGHTNING ROD!! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZAPPPPPPPPPPP!! NOT good!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend, Karen Lynn in Texas. :D

Most of the "skunks" I try to avoid when driving,
are the drunks and dope users. Can't always know
who is who, though, can we?
I enjoyed your poem, Ed.
