Fit to be Towed


in the city
the predators circle
your car their prey

do not look away
your vehicle will be towed
and you will have to pay

don’t be angry
she said
we’re just doing our job
and it’s on the sign

that is true
and perhaps i could have been less strident with my words
maybe i crossed a line

but my car had broken down
what was i to do?
you’d have been stunned too
to show up at the parking lot and not find your car waiting for you

what about the people with no insurance company to come through
who can’t find a way to get to the impound lot before closing or who can’t pay what’s due?

seems to me some businesses have forgotten what is good and true
the goal is not making a fast buck
it’s taking care of folks like me and you
