Anti-Social

His RPB is Constant

Speed fiend
You’re no friend
You maimed
Spread sadness
Destruction
Horror and pain
With no restraint
Conscience?
No, it’s foreign

Your RPB has'nt changed
Gloating
Smirking
Condescending

“This is a new machine
I’m not giving in
Step aside
You puny
Jalopies!
I have it made
Woweee…!”


Revving
He sped
But not quite
You’d pass him
In a minute
A sad ending

He's gone!
Mangled steel
In a heap
A total wreck
Date with the Devil
to keep
By the highway

A mother’s regret!

(RPB - Recurrent Pattern of Behavior)
