We Don’t Have to Listen

Regina Puckett

We’re driving down the road at least ninety miles an hour

The wind rushing through our hair renews our power

I’m turning the radio on as loud as it will blast

Watching the world speed by much too fast

But just this once, we’ll do our best to pretend it’s okay

If we don’t stop, we don’t have to listen to what they say
