Road Enraged

The phrase is bandied quite frivolously; “road rage”,

even the docile become adept purveyors; “road rage”.

Pale and subservient office staff turn Jackal and Hide.

Students, bosses, shoppers and wives

raise the finger and honk with a meaningful self-righteous pride.

Road Rage.

 

The cocooning shield boosts bravado; “road rage”,

and once embroiled in this vehemence played out on the black top

drivers abandon reason and humility

they wave fists, gesticulate and yell,

at the lazily meandering 4WD Utility

“Road Rage”

 

Why do we behave in this manner? “Road rage”.

 

Why are we so critical? “Road Rage”.

 

is it hastiness, is it …………?
