Poem of Caution
Those yellow signs on the roadside.
Curves ahead
Speed limit 20mph
Squiggly lines on yellow sign.
Deer crossing.
Caution fallen rock zone.
Flooding area.

Tales of life wouldn’t you say?
Last stop .
Terminal next . The end of the line.
No further to go.
Oh dear !
You ah hey you!
Are you talking to me ?
How much further on this transient railroad ?
Caution  Caution.
How much longer?
Appreciate with caution.
