Really, It Wasn’t My Fault!

Photo from Morguefile

Without the rancor I felt at my driving being criticized,

I reminded my dear one that I wasn’t the one at fault

For this debacle that we found ourselves in right now,

But he took my righteous anger with a grain of salt.

Mapquest had told me to go east at the next corner,

But I needed an ordianry “go left” or “go right.”

And because he was taking an ill-timed siesta,

He couldn’t assist me as I came up to the light.

So, going a little faster than I should’ve,

I missed very badly as I tried a smooth left turn.

Now you laugh with the officers at my calamity,

And I have a ticket to pay that I don’t believe I earned.

  1. Thanks for adding this cute poem to our RDP collection today! Accidents can sometimes appear quite amusing — to bystanders. You just have to fall back on that old line, “To err is human.”


  2. I really like your nice blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon. 🙂
