Bus

When limping down the street today,

cussing blue clouds, thinking evil thoughts,

I got hit by a city bus.

 

I got up slowly to my feet,

pulled out the driver and broke his head,

then jumped into his seat instead.

 

I drove like a banshee, smiled like a frog,

and sang into his microphone:

'Don't worry, people, you ain't alone!'

 

I skidded precise into every stop

and told the people no need to pay.

Every goddam thing is free today!

 

Be good. And if you can't be good ... enjoy!

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

Such rampant hedonism.....haha. You must have enjoyed writing it, too.

What a romp. Did you hurt the bus? A metaphor of your life? Enjoyed.

Well, I get the message on this one ... it's OK to go off the rails every now and then, but DON'T make a habit of it!!! Still, it was fun to write. Took all of seven minutes ....
