Robert Wagner


Having driven on the highway
Having met another car's bumper
Having been caught unaware
Under the golden lamps of valor
Sits the honorable man
Not having known the physics involved
Not having educated himself in much at all
Not having most of all known the equations
Of kinetic energy and collisions
Which releases the energy

Although he doesn't know
that kinetic energy and potential energy before
is kinetic energy and potential energy after
and when including a bit of momentum
makes a collision into an explosion

However he does know now
that blood in body and no blood outside before
is no blood in body and all blood outside after
but this knowledge came too late
unfortunately for this honorable man.
