The Traffic Stop

 

By Elton Camp

 

Dewey was late in his doughnut truck

While speeding, why what the luck

 

He saw the flashing of a blue light

And a siren—such a scary sight

 

Dewey pulled to the shoulder to wait

Up walked a cop of prodigious weight

 

He was four hundred pounds at least

So that he looked more like a beast

 

The obese officer took the driver to task

“Know why I stopped you?” he did ask

 

Dewey knew the thing he should say

However, that wasn’t gonna be today

 

“Why yes, I’m sure that I know.

Have some doughnuts, fatso.”

 

A costly lesson Dewey learned that day

The witty thing isn’t always best to say
