Jalopy

I told that woman
Don’t speak slowly
I’m not simple
I’m more complex than you’ll ever be.

I told that woman
Don’t make my decisions!
(How does she even function
With those snowflake sensibilities?)

I told that woman
Tea cures exactly nothing
Blankets do not warm me
Crosswords are futile
And TV’s pure purgatory.

I told that woman
I would bust out this old jalopy
Rip away the dust sheets
Spark up the engine
And ride free.

I told that woman.
She doesn’t listen.

Ah glad you like it Kim - I like to think of her throwing her support stockings out the window and doing a Thelma & Louise!
