Just Riding Providence!


I’m from Pennsylvania and
have never run into a ditch,
but, I have run into a cop.

I was driving my civil liberties
down the Pike of Providence,
when suddenly an invidious cop,

dressed in tyranny, blocked my way.
He said 2+2=3½ and I said
he was crazy...he put me in jail!

The next time I saw him
I spit in his face -
“2+2=4, Jackass! ”

His face turned red
in the presence of said...
admonition.

Me transmuting to...healthy hate.

    This was awesome. Caught me off-guard verse. As unfortunately the cops do around my area - they've snagged 3 my friends over in recent weeks for duis when damn, they were being so careful! now they must face fines, jail time, license suspension, and a whole heeping mound of bullshit. Authority sucks & is so corrupt. They always go after the wrong people.... meh. (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
