Roadkill on the Highway of Love

a little too much country radio today, perhaps

As luck would have it
he ran out of luck
when she stepped out of
that blue pickup truck
his defense could not handle
the formation she showed
like a possum in the headlights
on a dark country road
he was roadkill
on the highway of love

the story has been told
millions of times
and immortalized
with impeccable rhymes
but each time it happens
it’s a unique case
and the victim goes down
with a smile on their face
like roadkill on
the highway of love

The highway of love
is all express lanes
the joys are intense
but so are the pains
you have to keep moving
’cause if you stand still
on the highway of love
you’ll just be more roadkill
