As Romans Do

   avoiding sidewalks
they walk on streets

      fearing no cars
   assuming sanity
      among drivers

who learn to drive
with video games


   three points to kill
foolish pedestrians
      who step out
in front of a car

   being driven by
   a homicidal fool


ancient buildings line 
      an ancient street

      a crenelated wall
crosses the background

pedestrians won't cross
   the ancient road


   they drift along
   not bothered
by death on wheels

avoiding sidewalks
they walk on streets
