FOREVER AMBER

FOREVER AMBER

Green for go, he muttered
Eager to surge forward
Praying the lunatic in front
Wasn’t turning right

Is this what it has come to?
The whole world grinding to a halt
Impatiently waiting for a green light

How would we cope
If every light in the world
Stuck on amber
Or even red?

Like footballers,
Would we be re-programmed
To react to a whistle instead?
