Whenever I said green light, you said red
Light, fighting back with a smile on your face;
Racing hearts chased each other to keep pace
With the words that had already been said.
Through all of the formalities, I sped,
Dead set on letting my hand reach that space
Between left and right lanes; The only place
A man, just like me, could truly be fed.
As the beginning of your end drew near,
The truth about my true intentions leaked;
"FIRE TRUCKS NEVER STOP FOR RED LIGHTS..DEAR!"
While being left without a word to speak,
I, too, began to whisper in your ear,
"Remember 'INNOCENCE IS FOR THE WEAK'!"
