Speeding Busses©

 

I saw two different MBTA busses
at two different times
Going in two different directions
They had their employer name in common
Along with the facts that they were speeding and rushing through a yellow to red light
Then I saw a speeding school bus
So now is it a must that all busses of any kind have to speed
I thought about how it must have felt
Felt to be a passenger on a speeding bus that didn’t care about my life
Didn’t care about just how easy it would have been to take the life of everyone on the bus
And maybe the lives of innocent bystanders on foot or in cars
Why does anyone carrying passengers think it’s OK to speed
Is time so much more important than life
I know that keeping schedules are important but not more important than the safety of those you transport
I wish for not having to fear riding on busses
But I do fear riding on busses
I’m almost certain I won’t ride a bus again anytime soon

This poem was written after witnessing three speeding busses in one day. It scares me to think of how many lives are put at risk every day due to careless driving.
