Driving home with precious two
I looked back through my rear view
and I could see you
but that is all I could see
you were so terrifyingly close to me
The only faster place you’ll go
by driving so close, don’t you know
is to heaven’s gates you silly guy
no matter how hard you try
the closer you get to the back of my car
will land you quick inside a jar
on someone mantle, with sad-solem faces
so chill out joe, before God erases
your mean-mad face from planet earth
where I drive the speed limit, for what’s that worth!
man, you scare me, you make things worse
cause now I accidentally said a curse
in front of those precious two
and now Junior is saying that bad word too
help me Lord, I cry I wail!
make that guy get off my tail
you tailgaters make me reel
n’ feel a way I should not feel
so I’ll pray for you instead
ask God to fill that silly head
with better choices down the road
so you don’t end up squished like a toad.
and that’s tailgating. I really dislike these people. It rarely happens on the main road, but God bless all your hearts who want to drive 45 through my tiny-little neighborhood where the limit is barely 20 and parents play with their kids by the street. We ride our bikes, we play catch, we go for walks, we have tiny little babies that make HORRIBLE decisions and run outside when mommy goes to the bathroom. COME ON guys. It scares the daylights outta me when I see you fly up behind me like a great bald eagle, or skyrocket past my house while we are outside. I always think that they probably-maybe have to go to the bathroom really, really bad. But this is not something that could happen on a daily basis.
My prayer for my neighborhood tailgaters is that you calm down, chill out, and relax a bit. Get a hammock, no one in their right mind could ever be stressed out in a hammock. Let’s all pray for peace inside.
Let’s look to the Bible:
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
