Overdrive

How pedestrian of you not to think outside your box I understand sketchy neighbourhood being too afraid to stop I don't mean to be insulting pedestrian has more meanings but not one of them speed bump and as you rock it in your three ton cozy bassinet mind two wheels despite your vigor is not a speed impediment and don't believe that that last text is truly a matter of life and death I'd rather be late in this life than early for the next. 18.03.30 Composed for Brendan J. Simons' Societal Discontent

Ah thank you so much Gershon! There's a lot of visceral venom in this piece, still recovering from years of being on the receiving end of road rage and otherwise um, inconsiderate "sharers" of the road. Was a bike courier for 20yrs, obeyed traffic laws... complimented by cops, accosted by drivers, J-walkers...

It's an epidemic! The police been getting creative here, dressing up as bums holding cardboard signs telling drivers they are cops hunting drivers on their phones, others on public transpo looking down into cars issuing tickets. Doesn't seem to deter.

Heh, means little to drivers in my town. Though gotta say, drivers being more courteous since a pedestrian was run over and killed crossing at a crosswalk a block from my home last week. Not a busy street either, residential four way stop.
