“Syd7t5” https://syd7t5.wordpress.com/ posted a #napowrimo challenge to take a line from someone else’s poem and take it in a whole new direction. Here is my contribution to the literary universe…
“Stopped by Police on a Summer Evening”
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And all this struggle to stay awake
Is quite enough to make me weep.
How much coffee will it take
To give this drowsiness a shake.
Why’d I have to have that beer!
I just can’t give myself a break.
I’ve been driving for a year!
Why’s there not a bathroom near!
Damn! I really have to go.
But now I’ve something else to fear.
Whose lights those are I think I know,
God, I wonder what I’ll blow,
God, I wonder what I’ll blow.
