Slow down for the speed humps of life.

Steer clear of trouble and strife.

If you miss seeing speed bumps from afar.

Expect your life to come ajar.


And if you don't have built-in radar.

A speed trap will get you and more than your car.

Slow down, and smell the sweet roses of life.


Savor the moments so relaxing and free.

Where speed used to be.
