Has You Seen This Man? How About

the Man He Used to Be?

"Calling all cars, calling all cars! Be on the lookout

For a stumbling fool who has completely lost it!

Now, when we say 'stumbling', we're not talking 'walking';

Although that too; no, we're talking life-path

He was on the correct path, if it was a touch boring,

But a swerve into his lane, and it was all-she-wrote

Everything he cared about gone in a twist of metal

Well, not everything, but he certainly veered onto an unexpected path

Now it's "hang on, shut up, and just watch the scenery whip past"

He's just a passenger on a long, strange trip

Suspect may be armed with sarcasm; stay back,

May say the wrong thing some--nay--most of the time

Suspect may become agitated, and out of control

If sighted, do not attempt to apprehend, or reason,

With him; please dial 911 and notify the proper authorities!"
