It never fails.
You’re riding on rails
sailing down the road
in a trail of dust that you must be
breaking the sound barrier -
a miles harrier. Then you see it.
Could it be what you’re thinking?
Your eyes start blinking and it sinks in.
There’s an ass on the road. There’s ALWAYS
an ass on the road. Idiots come up quickly behind you
to sickly remind you that you’re in the way.
But an ass on the road makes you frown,
they’re only there to slow you down.
It never fails. It’ll haw and bray and hold you up
all day. There’s always an ass on the road.
