Happy Monday

Full Contact Commuting

Emerald, topaz, ruby,
Gems that inspire stupidity,
Driving witless beasts to destruction.

Three-eyed Cyclops
Rules the road.
Challengers roar.

Emerald glares, cold,
Jealous of power,
Blaring, impatient.

Topaz warns of
Consequences unheeded.
Flee! Your doom approaches!

Ruby, the flame of passion,
Ignites fury, unbridled,
Wild, raging, daring all to try.

Green, yellow, red.
Simple colors, a simple code.
Innocents die.
