Chillin' in the Slow Lane





Too much rage and anger,
too much speed and guile;
I like driving slowly,
making people smile.

An icon from an era when
youthful voices cried for
giving peace a chance;
making love, not war;

I now make memories shine
on wrinkled, grinning faces;
of roads once traveled,
of long forgotten places.

A peace sign, a thumbs up,
a wave, or happy laughter;
bringing joy to others
is truly what I’m after,

chillin’ in the slow lane.
