peace free binga lot, fast
is what was wanted
but not
any more

big city
big job
lots of money
and more

she surrenders
she has chosen
not to race
any more

there is not a top
just more,

race, quick, hurry
you have somewhere to be
she cannot race
any more

honk and yell
you are not patient
must go fast
you want too much more

sad or angry
people often seem
she needs to see smiles
on faces more

no longer desired
peace of mind
she would like more

smaller town
slower life
must retreat
she wants so much more
