This is my response to today’s Daily Prompt.  Enjoy.


The biker rode by and our eyes locked,

His facial expression was pretty shocked,

He couldn’t turn away so he maintained the stare,

And I really wished I wasn’t there.


A thousand metre drop, the view to my right,

Did absolutely nothing to ease my plight.

My advice to you, whether you heed it or not.

Don’t scoff a curry then drive a hundred miles,

‘Cos on a mountain road without a single rest-stop,

All you can do,

Is squat.
