Born under a Bad Sticker by Melanie Browne

at my sons junior high
I take too long
to make a left hand turn
I like to be safe-
don’t want to
be
a chopped beef
sandwich
in the median,
Beep!! the lady behind
me honks,
and later she pulls
ahead of me
driving a Honda
with those cute
little family stickers
on the  back
lets see
there’s a mom and a dad
and three kiddos
one in soccer, one
in ballet….
but dear God!
she has too many cat stickers
one, two,
three!
she’s a crazy cat lady
no wonder
she’s impatient
and irritable..
