REAR GUARD ACTION

REAR GUARD ACTION

On the way home traffic was slow,

For what reason I didn’t know…

A loaded R.V.

With trailer was the,

Reson for brake light glow!

I don’t travel fast at night,

To me it seemed right…

To become its rear guard

So drivers untoward,

With me could flash their lights.

Most everyone went round,

No angry horns did sound…

Two lanes in each way

Saved the day,

When the R.V. down-hill slowed down!

My exit came up for my nest,

The R.V. driver I blessed…

I prayed that they

Safely made their way

To where they’d be stopping next!
