The right turn

Written by: Duke Beaufort

Noxious noise too loud is absurd
What's the point of saying a word?
Some bikers adore
A Harley's revved-up roar
And tread on my right to be heard!



Author's note: How about a wedding band so loud that there's no chance of a conversation at the table?  Why do the people generating the noise have no idea?  Who is shunning gentleness and subtlety for the sake of shock and awe?  What happened to democracy's sense of empathy and fairness?  Where is the government regulation to assure peace and quiet?  When will my ears get a break?
