No Free Ride (H17a)

sticky feet
tap out the beat
of the box that someone left

who’d driving this bus?

precious cargo
on laps
the rest on floors
between feet that help them stand
up straight.

who’s driving this buy?

you pay your fare
pull the chord
and exit to the rear of the bus
but not before it comes to a full stop.

Full Stop.

Did you remember to drive the bus?
