  1. A mile a minute

    As we motion through
    Life
    Do we
    Notice the friends on the way?
    do we talk
    to them?
    Or wave as we pass
    them up today
    When it was noted
    Everyone who saw the
    freeway system
    Back in the 50's
    The highways were thought
    to be as futile as they were
    without cars with the traffic
    of today
    The observer said
    "I have seen the future, and
    it doesn't work"
    Now we see this prediction
    and they still remain the same
    with a few more lanes for the
    Express toll and carpool
    To make us believe in improvement
    And giving us hope in the construction
    Of more wider freeways
    The problem is that there are too many cars!
    And by widening the roads with more lanes
    are quickly filled in by the time they are made
    More cars are built and filling in the space
    creating guilt of having the freeway unworkable
    As it was then predicted so long ago in the
    last 65 years where we have the tendency to drive
    even faster
    not a mile a minute
    but a mile
    until the next disaster
    sitting in the miles of
    traffic

  2. Global high
    Anxiety
    More and more
    Acts.

    Non stop survival
    No cat cuddle
    Miss the
    Purr.

    Fast forward

    Antidote is hard
    Is settling
    Is press the
    Brakes.
