it's just another sign of distraction,
so concerned about those future puddles
that you miss taking evasive action.
Starting with a splash-
it's a filthy wake up call of no use,
because now that you have got in this mess
you put your soles under further abuse.
Changing your attire-
it's a short term solution to stay clean
but if you take the same mud-ridden path
you will get as dirty as you had been.
Avoiding the path-
sure it will stop you getting in that state
but your curiosity draws you in
and you are forced to the same filthy fate.
