This poem is an experimental style--an attempt to merge common sayings with fragments of sentences and some silly advertising slogans.
Life is full of ups and downs.
(Professional driver on closed course.)
This way to the race track.
(Enter at own risk.)
Rain in the afternoon
(Contains no cholesterol.)
It's a dangerous world out there
(Keep arms and legs inside car.)
Clark knocks it over the left-field wall
(Do not try this at home.)
Earth is fragile
(No preservatives used.)
Finish what you start
Driving in the fast lane
(actual mileage may vary.)
Life has lessons to teach
