yon thoroughfare
an ancient ballad for the modern commuter
by tim lockwood

For Rick Collins, whose work has yet again inspired me to compose moronic drivel.

Are you driving on yon thoroughfare
Chevy, Dodge, Mercedes and Saab?
Remember please, to take extra care
For that is how I get to my job.

I only want to make it to work
Chevy, Dodge, Mercedes and Saab
Without a bullet to puncture my shirt
For I don't want to lose my good job.

Flip me the finger if I cut you off
Chevy, Dodge, Mercedes and Saab
Forgive me too, for my sudden stop
My coffee spilled, and it's very hot.

Haven't you learned yet, it's all about me
Chevy, Dodge, Mercedes and Saab?
My cell phone call in my S U V
Is more important than your stinkin' job.

Are you driving on yon thoroughfare
Chevy, Dodge, Mercedes and Saab?
Remember please, to take extra care
For that is how I get to my job.


ABOUT TIM LOCKWOOD

My life is an open book. A comic book, about a superhero with the amazing ability to make his nose hair grow. Oh, and someone's torn out the order form for the $2.99 X-ray specs.

Ever notice how close "Cantacle" and "Testicle" are? Not really very, I guess.
