Micro-Poem (No.11) The Backseat Driver
My wife always knits or crochets in the car as we are driving. She rarely looks up but this doesn't stop her giving me driving advice and telling me what I'm doing wrong...lol. this poem is a slight exaggeration...but only slight.
The Backseat Driver
by John Hansen © 2014
"Straighten up the car
You've parked crooked again.
I won't be able to open the door
Without scratching the car next door.
Slow down gradually before the corner,
And don't brake so suddenly.
You almost ran off the road.
You're crossing the centre line again,
We almost hit that car."
"For God's sake Darling,
Give me a break.
We haven't even
Left our garage yet."
