The Ride

freshly dug dirt
to cover the past..

psycho cool-aid
to quench your thirst..

just don’t swallow!
live til’ tomorrow!

say your goodbye’s..
sing lullabies..

go get your ticket
to board the train..

nevermind that,
the driver is insane..

you must go!
hang on tight!

be on your way..
take the ride!

Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems in 2016?
