Right Of Way (8/30)


For day eight the prompt over at NaPoWriMo was to write an ottava rima which usually takes the form of an eight-line stanza of iambic pentameter, with a rhyme scheme of a-b-a-b-a-b-c-c.




Why do folks stand off the curb

While waiting to cross the street?

For being impatient and perturbed,

Is how pedestrians and vehicles meet.

Holding for a walk sign, that's absurd!

Says the jaywalker with anxious feet.

Oooops, is on the curb where I'm supposed to stay?

Yes dumbass, you don't have the right-of-way.

  1. I love my fellow pedestrians but some of these bammas know they need to stay their ass outta the street when they don't have the light to walk...some are so bad that they will walk out in on coming traffic like it's cool and dare you to hit them...they are off the chain!
