Fortunately, I had heard the car approaching
Unusually fast, I remember thinking,
Considering I’m half way across the crossing, I
Keep on walking, slower now and then
Not going any further.
Glad I did, as the car skids past me
I wonder what the driver thinks
Did he/she not see me?
I’m the blind one after all.
Only fair to scream my considered opinion of
The driver who nearly killed me today.
