NEW YORK ROUNDABOUT

by October 17, 2018 0 comments

the camera was freed up
the rep ready to go
he hopped in the cab
the sky turned over
and all the peds spilled out
falling through the clouds

the cabbie blew his horn
everybody got out of the way
he roared through the mountaintops
screaming with laughter

they made it to Union
he thought in the nick of time
he ran down the stairs
and got in line
then they all bailed
and he ran to the counter

all sold out
he crawled back up
and found the same cabbie
idling illegally

he said
can I get a refund
nope
can I get a receipt
nope
can I get a free ride
I’m broke
the cabbie said
you’re shit outta luck
