Neopoet Random Challenge #7...

No! I've missed the last fuel stop!
Eager to make time, I blew it
Oh, I hope that I have enough to make it
Perhaps I will, if I drive steady
Okay, just take it slow
Easy does it, ignore
Those butterflies in my stomach
Dot the I's
Call on your inner reserves
Omit any doubts and
Make sure the desert doesn't get you

I love doing these challenges, because they challenge me! ~ Geezer.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!
