Like you ain’t got no place to go!
Why are you going so slow?
Hogging up all the pathways,
Not aware of others on the go!
… Those who also want to enjoy the day,
But need to get on and not be unnecessarily delayed!
You see them all whilst out walking,
Walking Talking Squawkers,
… and their friends!
Hogging the middles of straight lines
Strollers too slowly taking the natural bends,
Too slow, way too slow,
Walking purely for fun,
Not walking to get done!
Walking slowly Monday to Friday!
Like it’s still the Weekend!
Without a care in the world, they’re dawdle unhurriedly!
Mentally drifting horizontally without a worry!
Sunday strollers and dreamy star gazers,
Dribbling along the pathways,
Like soiled milk seeping out of a crushed carton!
Crawling along as if in a drunken haze!
Or pretending to be overwhelmed beasts of burden!
Why do you all walk so slow?
… Like you ain’t got no place to go!
Walking can be enjoyed at any pace,
… but you have got to at least walk!
You don’t have to race,
…. You are not up against a clock!
But for the record …. Snails sliver quicker!
So by all means, talk and gawk but do it slicker!
