Out of The Hat

Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary

Ragin` Road

All the little bugs scuttle around

fighting, shoving, pushing

the competition out of the lane.

One little girl loses her ball,

she chases her ball,

she steps foot in the street.



There is no little girl,

the girl is gone.

All the bugs swarm the street,

pushing, shoving.

They do not know that she is gone,

they do not care that she is gone.

They are too busy,

they have somewhere to be.

And the little girl is gone.

    What moving verse, although it made me feel quite sad! It speaks to me this week in particular.

      Yes, I scribbled it on a napkin in a bit of particularly bad traffic. D.C. has a lot of aggressive drivers… :/

    I can feel your frustration on the road! I love your post, although it really is very sad.

      I have yet to personally witness a vehicular murder, however I have been involved in a crash. May I just warn you against driving in the greater DC/Northern Virginia/ Capital Area Maryland.

  3. We all have to be somewhere don’t we? And we’re all so very busy and important that we can’t be bothered…by anyone, for anything. It’s despairing. That said, the prose you’ve written is sad, but also very lovely.
