Flashing lights behind me
at two in the afternoon.
Immediately I pull over
into a red zone.
Where you headed? Asks the cop.

You can’t park in a red zone.
I’m just dropping off my wife at the store
then I’m leaving.
I could have sworn I saw you drinking a beer.
I wasn’t drinking anything, Officer,
maybe it was this you saw.
Okay, since I don’t smell any alcohol
you can go.
Beautiful young Asian female
ugly old Caucasian male.
Alcohol or drugs
must be involved.
