The Exhilaration of Acceleration

It’s really true, isn’t it?

The rapid increase in velocity is

What gives us a thrill!

Rubbing two sticks together causes fire.

A Corvette, a Lamborghini, a Tesla.

3 Gs in a rocket ship

Pushes us into our seats,

Into space.

Disneyland, roller coasters,

It is the feeling of acceleration

That brings us that pleasure,

The rate of change of speeding up,

The quick change artistry,

The free fall of skydiving,

The Earth’s gravity increasing our fall,

‘Til the parachute opens,

Hits the brakes.

Rapid positive change is a liberating feeling.
