reflecting on a near miss

You just struck out!

You just struck out! (Photo credit: BurgTender)

as I went walking tonight I looked up
and admired the night sky full of twinkling stars
and remembered I once thought that
in my lifetime we would land a man on mars

and whatever happened to the miracle modern age
of bioengineering and biotechnology?
that I felt for certain would cure
my wife and daughter of their bipolar misery

then I look down and turn my focus
a little closer to home
as I neared the last street crossing
of my little thirty minute roam

when a truck turns the corner
avoiding me with a near miss
and I think perhaps I should wear a reflective jacket
when walking on a dark night like this
