Do all the racing cars
have a chance of winning the race
or just those driven by drivers
who have a famous face?
That is how it seems to me
when I see the same winners
on the news again,
smiling with their silver cups,
spraying themselves with champagne.
It seems that all the other racing cars
are only there for show.
I suppose only those
interested in the sport would know.
Do all those shooting stars
ever find their resting place?
How far along the track
is the human race?
Unseen water flows underground.
It can be sensed, its source found.
Mountain oak creaks in the wind.
Alert hare attends to the sound.
Away from racing cars to human absence
in the wild I am bound.
