Morning Sunrise with Oversize
By: Heidi O.
As you wake up each morning,
The sun shines upon your face,
You start your truck and realize,
you are in America’s race.
The race to meet your deadline
so your load gets brought on time
The struggle of every moment,
Racing the clock while the sun shines
Your oversized load is heavy
and it slows you down a bit
Since you can only run in daylight
You take off at sunrise instead of sit
You follow all traffic
and obey the law mans rules
Your qualcom tells you when
you must take a break to cool
Your break is now about over
and the sun still shines through
So off out into the traffic
is how it goes for you.
You deal with all these assholes
that speed right on past.
They act like they dont see you
Even with your signs and flags,
You try to ignore their impatience
as you like to be safe,
sometimes you want to scream
and just get in their face,
Can’t you see me coming
with this big old rig and load?
I want to make delivery safely
without an accident on these roads.
