I was poetically inspired after witnessing an episode of road rage yesterday outside of Costco. Of all places, I know.
While one man felt entitled to the vacant parking spot, the second man (who must have left his conscience at home) slid his large white truck effortlessly into the spot. I assume he felt it his right to get the spot instead.
We Have A Problem Here
When road meets rage,
the loudspeaker roars
“We have a problem here people.”
Take one down and pass it around,
the anger is growing like brush fire.
He raises his right fist, exclaiming,
“Hey you, you took my parking spot”
while couples stand around for the opening credits.
The other man laughs, smiles, and snorts,
“So what?!” and merrily walks away into the store.
Shopping will wait for no one.
