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!"
