I Live For Nascar Days


We bow our heads for drivers past

Before each race begins

And pray the track stays safe today

And that our driver wins


The Green flag drops and engines race

And thunder sounds below

And every fan is on their feet

To watch them start the show


The competition’s here to win

All pressed up in the pack

There’s a steely glare in every mirror

On a 28,000 horse race track


On every turn the danger lurks

And tempers start to warm

The spotters perched up high above

Will guide them through the storm


The final lap approaches fast

They’re coming out three wide

The white flag drops, we rise as one

To see them side by side


One final round of thunder sounds

The checkered flag is raised

A hero flies across the line

I live for Nascar Days!

YOu know I never have been to a race although there is a car track not far from where I live. However your vivid imagery is like a film before my eyes. Thanks for the race! ginga

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
