AT THE WHEEL                                           


I'm sorry for any grief the current

administration has caused you.

I did not vote for a one of them

but I did buy this second hand car.


And I make no apology for the

noisy muffler, rattling engine.

What do you expect

with what I paid for it.


Someone says, whether I like

it or not, the executive branch

is my responsibility. Likewise,

the racket I make driving this thing.


It's one road, one president,

one war, one law, one economy,

one car making one unholy din,

and we're all at the wheel.
