The Traffic Stop

The Traffic Stop

By Elton Camp

Dewey was late in his doughnut truck
While speeding, why what the luck

He saw the flashing of a blue light
And a siren—such a scary sight

Dewey pulled to the shoulder to wait
Up walked a cop of prodigious weight

He was four hundred pounds at least
So that he looked more like a beast

The obese officer took the driver to task
“Know why I stopped you?” he did ask

Dewey knew the thing he should say
However, that wasn’t gonna be today

“Why yes, I’m sure that I know.
Have some doughnuts, fatso.”

A costly lesson Dewey learned that day
The witty thing isn’t always best to say
