Serves Him Right....

Serves Him Right....

A Poem by Dawn

The boy racer drives like a nutter
down the high street
then onto the motorway
gets off the motorway.

Drives along some country roads
then into some seaside
town.

And starts to make a
twit of himself in the
resort.

Blasting his annoying air horn.
And revving his engine to
show off.
And starting to chatting up
some local lassies.

Saying you like my ride?

And the old folk of the town.
Are thinking.
Moron, twit, show off.

Later on in the evening.
Some local resident
Called Charlie.
Heard about this guy.
So came to offer him
a drag race along the quiet
seaside towns promenade.
At 1 am.

When everything is closed
and the streets are clear.
And if he lost.
He had to clear off and never
come back.

Unknown to this "boy racer".
Charlie's father had a Porsche.
And at 1 am he arrives in it.
Ready for the race.

And the racer boy was sitting in
his Volkswagon Polo.
With his flash wheel trims and mad two toned
the coloured car with his annoying airhorn of course.
With his fluffy car seat covers
and hanging dice from the windscreen mirror.

And of course.
Charlie the local lad
Kicked his arse into touch.
And this other lad
had to leave and never
return to that seaside town again.

I guess the moral of
this tale.
Is stop annoying
locals of a place
you don't know.

As someone will come along and
outsmart you and
kick your butt.
As they did to this boy racer.

I love the voice you've developed in this poem, casual, conversational and authentic. It truly feels as though it is drawn from experience, and I know exactly the kind of individual that you're discussing here, having encountered similar people myself. Your use of repetition to drive home your point is wonderful, as is the line 'kicked his arse in to touch'. Basically I really enjoyed this, well done!

An interesting story written in the form of a free verse poem. I enjoyed this tale of 'rough justice', in that the fellow reaps what he sows, that is in acting anti-social, he is outdone by a local and has to quit town.

If that boy had any brains, he would have put a turbo into that polo.
Good moral mind you. It's all in the horsepower.

Thanks Paul.
Boy racers,are not the brightest chaps on the road and inevitably crash. More worried about the girls and bystanders who could also be a casualty. Nice one Dawn.

You're welcome :)
Love the way you 'attacked' that situation, shouted it, purred it, laid it, shot the road and rode it so well.. way to go, indeed! Full of fun, graphics, moral and more, Dawn. Great read.. could become an epic example of how to demolish arrogance!

A bit of instant karma put him in his place, didn't it. Serves him right. I know of a few racers around here that could use someone to put them in their place. .....someday. :)
