No excuse is good enough for distracted driving, he angrily asserted


The Hypocritical Cop

By Elton Camp

The cop stalked indignantly to the car
“Now just who do you think you are!”

“I saw you daring to send a text.
For a ticket and fine, you’re next.”

“Safety is the most important concern.
When, good sense, will you ever learn!”

“For there is no excuse good enough
To be doing such dangerous stuff.”

He then drove away and didn’t stop
As he keyed into his cruiser laptop

Used radio, radar and dash camera too
His eyes off the road these things to do

From his sacred mission he’ll not swerve
He’ll piously recite “To protect and serve”

Ah the hypocrisy. Loved this poem, it was great to read and I loved at the end how he went back to his car full of fancy stuff.

Where we live, there are some truly troubling scums who gets employed in law enforcement. Troubling, indeed. Thanks for reading. Elton
