No Right To Race


No trip is so important and ... No urgency so great... That
we must drive our auto at... A really reckless rate... For there
are children in the street... Who have a right to live... And
who deserve the fullest care... And caution we can give...And
there are people who are old...and those who cannot see... As
well as folks afflicted with...Some worse infirmity... We have
no right or reason to... Be careless at the wheel... However
much experienced... And competent we feel... So let us be
more carefulas... We drive our car today... That we may
cause no injury... And take no life away.
