Slip Sliding Away

Slip Sliding Away
Slip Sliding Away
You know the farther your destination
The more you're slip sliding away
I am a man
I drive to a small town
The road wears a snow and ice covered sheet like a thorny crown
I said Platteville
I live in fear
The wind is so overpowering I'm afraid I will disappear
slip sliding away
I said a good day ain't got no snow
A bad day is when there's snow and ice and wind
And think of accidents that might have been
You know the farther your destination the more you're slip sliding away

Hi, mcradloff,

I said a good day ain't got no snow

What great images. You turned what otherwise could have been a bad day into a Slip Sliding Away write. What fun...as long as you don't go slip sliding away! Thanks for sharing—and stay safe.

Nice parody. In Wisconsin winter must be freighting cause of traffic. Be safe my dear poet. SMwave
