By John Ross Harvey

What happens when it rains?
It gets dark
It gets slippery
It’s hard to see
So why do motorists drive without lights?
What possible train of thought
Could make these people
Want to drive so poorly?
Do they think their grey car
On the grey road
Under a grey sky
Is visible?
We don’t need a wild experiment
To make an invisible man
We just need a motorist
Without lights in a rainstorm
There are thousands of these
Invisible beings every rainfall
Their eyesight is shot too
Heaven forbid they turn their lights on
High beam flashing them
Only makes you see them briefly
They will continue unabated
In their invisible form
Until someone that doesn’t see them
Finally hits them
And asks the question
What planet are you from?
