(In memory of the ones that left us; snatched away from the roads)
Heaven, we have arrived at these Pearly Gates unscheduled.
We had hired the driver to take us home;
But determined to eat up the road
Before the other drivers finished it ahead of him,
Our fast driver tore down the highway –
Commanding his tyres to gobble down the tarmac.
And being greedy in his feasting, the raging driver we hired missed our home.
