Cognition with Emotion pt 1

Sun Ra 



In my autombile, down was my head
I looked up slowly to see an 18 wheeler that sped,
Towards me without notice, nor with traction

I clicked my seat belt off
Duke Hazard' my way out
Ran a small distance away

And watched as the two vehicles made transaction [/CRASH!]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In my autombile, down was my head
I looked up slowly to see an 18 wheeler that sped,
Towards me without notice, nor with traction
The time it took, was without a fraction
As I tore my seatbelt off in action
And I leaped to the backseat,
With my arms stretched out wide,
My body pressed against my two children as they cried
Guardianship granted, I didn't care if I died,

So, I closed my eyes with ultimate satifaction
As the two vehicles finally made transaction [/CRASH!]
