The “Ows” of the 99%

.

~

The traffic’s alive!

on I-95,

it’s bumper to bumper with traffic.

~

I’m a-cruzin’ along,

hearing my songs,

when the cop car pulls up like magic.

~

‘’Pull over Bud,’‘

his siren is saying,

so I turn down the sound

of the music that’s playing.

~

And I say when he reaches my window:

~

“Yes sir, officer sir,

How do you do, and what d’ya know?”

~

And he spoke thusly:

~

“You know, sir,

you’re playing

your music quite loudly,

and swaying

throughout all the lanes.

~

Basically, sir –

you’re erratic,

indeed, in this dangerous traffic.”

~

And I replied thisly:

~

“Well, regarding the sound,

I can turn that stuff down;

but I’d like you to know.

I pay taxes on other roads also!”

~

To which, said he thenly:

~

“And that sir is true;

but tonight, just for you,

I’m putting you up in our jail.

~

For you, for free –

no need to thank me,

you pay taxes for that just as well.”
