Poet hopes to inspire students to be safe while driving

I write poems for the Hall’s Corner Senior Apartments newsletter. One that I wrote, “On the Road,” seems appropriate since school is starting. It may wake up some students from speeding and texting. If I can save one child’s life with this poem, it would give me much pleasure.

“On the Road”

By Jean Markie

Driving lately has become a task

No matter who you talk to or even ask

Speeding & texting are common today

Don’t let this be you or someone will pay

When you get in your car, take time to think

You can avoid an accident, which can happen in a blink

Remember we are here only one time around

Don’t let it come sooner, or you’ll be in the ground
