Ten Seconds - May 16, 2001

Ten Seconds
(c) May 16, 2001

I climb inside
turn the key
exhaust of thunder fills my need

Check all red pegs
internal boost
shoulder harness must not come loose

Eight holes of fire
shake the beast
the violence puts my mind at ease

Up to the line
quick burn for fun
I'll make some smoke with wrinkles spun

Rubber melted
to the track
Just one last check as I roll back

Serious now
this one's for cash
Hope my rod can blast this dash

Inch to the light
wait signal lock
White, amber, green, a hot hole shot

Ten slow seconds
lightning quick
Win light left, racer Rick

Just a thought
who's to say
I might go fast again someday
