Sammi’s Weekender #243 (temerity)

In First Place

I’ve heard,
hold my beer and watch this.
Said it myself.
Miraculously,
I survived
to tell you
of my teenage temerity,
disregarding risk,
contempt for danger.

Like others, I was certain I’d live
forever.
Also, like survivors,
I now know I will not.

I want to go out in a blaze of glory,
not drenched in tomfoolery. Therefore,
I shall decline all qualifying events
for next year’s Darwin Awards.


Look both ways for the consequences of your own confidence.
Mind the gaps for the parenthetical excuses of fools.

    1. Thank you, Dale.
      I read recently (Bill Bryson) that number one cause of death among teenager is accidents. And the number one cause of accidents is being around other teenagers. 🙂 I agree.
