Title: lifejacket 3
Post by: Chris Dudley on May 14, 2018, 12:21:59 PM
Seatbelts and airbags for riding a car
The danger there is speed
Momentum, hard objects, crushing steel
The violence of rubber wheels.

Astronauts got an emergency rocket
to lift them off of the candle
But two shuttles down, there’s not much to do
When things break at high altitude.

Your seat cushion is a floatation device
In the case of a water landing
Oxygen masks will self deploy
If there’s a loss of pressure.

Give me a boat with paddle or oar
And a lifejacket cast in the bottom
No cars off bridges or falling debris
From some calamity up in the air.
