Driving around DC DC #2

It was

bumper to bumper to bumper

almost five and pm on a Saturday Night

ten/one/ten DC DC

District of Colonial

as some have said

the only place in America

outside prison

that you can live and not vote

Actually ten two and a march and a march and a..

whether this was save the Dems or Save the GOPs

don’t know don’t care

it’s past that part of my life

Bumper to bumper

cars and cars and cars

Saturday night on DC

and on

and on

and on

driving in circles until they end

After a long writhing while

we strode past DC

and went on

regular roads

regular roads 10/2 3/2

Once past DC

Once we went past DC

I could relax

hear a little radio

WAMU 88.5 American University

American University

where we’ve been for conferences

with John from Lewes

and who?

miss going to Lewes

having time in my life

to just be

to just be Bob Small

to just be Bob

to just be
