On the side of the road.A Poem by Ron Braley
Just a thought about how "society" has made people scared to stop and help.
Broken down at the side of the road,
cell phone not working, I’m about to explode!
Just knowing as people pass by,
shaking their heads, saying “my, oh my!”
While I dream of going fishing,
and constantly wishing.
That one good Samaritan,
would stop and see if they can,
Help me in some way,
or to make my day!
The longer I wait in the ditch,
just knowing there are people who which,
Will continue to drive,
while I just hope to survive,
To get home in a hurry,
so that my family won’t worry!
It’s silly to think this I know,
but as my thoughts wander to and fro,
While they sit at home and watch TV,
If they will even miss me!
Oh well, I guess,
T’was me that got in this mess,
By texting a friend,
while going around a bend.
My phone in one hand,
I listen to a new band,
With the radio up loud,
singing along, so proud,
In a hurry to get to my house,
to be with my spouse.
Then out of the blue,
I hear, “can I help you?”
When I open my eyes,
I see these 3 wise guys!
My wife and my kids,
going, “wow, look what you did!”
Even though I’ll be home late tonight,
Cause of love, I’ll be alright!
