She had so many hazardous curves
and speed bumps
that the signposts of her sex read
“Flood Area Ahead”,
“Slippery When Wet”,
“Private Road
No Trespassing”,
but those signs only made men
rev more desperately,
their engines overheating in
as no inroads were made
and no roundabouts taken,
ignoring, to the last,
the sign that said it all
about their chances:
“Dead End”.
