One more accident in the rain

One more accident in the rain  from Friday, June 7th

 

Boom! Crash! Bang!

Boom! Crash! Bang!

Listening to Imus on Route 252

Friday in the rain

 

Accident #2,392 it seems

rearended and-

rearended and –

someone who died

 

someone who died

a long time ago and was friend

even though Lawyer

told me it’s never never never

 

told me it’s never never never

your fault when rear-ended

your fault when rear-ended

never your fault when rear-ended

 

though he had a case once

I still miss Barry 

and want to call him, dead these many years-

at times like these to stay sober-

 

so stop the car and get out

so stop the car and get out

the other driver doesn’t

the other driver doesn’t

 

she won’t give up her information

not name or number or insurance

not name or number or insurance

not even after

 

 

not even after

I copy down license and model

not even after then

not even after then

 

As Don Imus says 

“I was born at night, not just last night”

More than probable

More than probable

 

the Springfield Police

can’t do diddly

the way the laws are written

the way the laws are written

 

But I’ve been here before

way too many times  before

and I know how it rolls

and do not dream of justice

and do not dream of justice
