The Law Is Always Just
This evening on my way home from SDW,
tripped over a gigantic pile of horse apples
from a proud downtown mounted cop
That same cop, on First and Union, wrote
a bent old man a ticket
for failing to bag up a steaming pile
of his Cocker Spaniel's crap.
Why doesn't the strong arm of the government
have to clean up its own shit?
