Automatic CAUTION Door

Postby notzeb » Wed Jun 10, 2009 12:32 am UTC

I always wonder what it is that they have to automatically caution me about as I walk through.

In between the route marks
And the shaving rhymes,
Black and yellow markers
Comment on the times.
All along the highway
Hear the signs discourse:

MEN
S L O W
WORKING
;
SADDLE
C R O S S I N G
HORSE
.

Cryptic crossroad preachers
Proffer good advice,

Helping wary drivers
Keep out of Paradise.

Transcontinental sermons,
Transcendental talk:

SOFT
C A U T I O N
SHOULDERS
;
CROSS
C H I L D R E N
WALK
.

Wisest of their proverbs,
Truest of their talk,
Have I found that dictum:

CROSS
C H I L D R E N
WALK
.

When Adam took the highway,
He left his sons a guide:

CROSS
C H I L D R E N
WALK
;
CHEERFUL
C H I L D R E N
RIDE
.
