You Strayed.

 

You strayed on to the road;

the worst time of the day,

commuters going to work,

to school.

You were trapped by the traffic;

panicked and scared,

terror in your eyes,

terrorized!

Jeep and horsebox,

police halting traffic,

as they pulled you one way;

and you resisted.

How I’d have liked to have

climbed from the car,

whispered some calmness into

your ear.

But I could only be an outsider,

watching your fear,

as the vehicle moved forward

until clear.

I only hope that when you returned,

you were not made to suffer

any more for the ‘inconvenience’

you had caused.
