    The rush hour rushes
    Cars and pedestrians
    Taxicabs and buses

    From today's troubles
    I will soon be relieved
    As I sit at the light
    Eating a fish sandwich with cheese

    A hard thing to do
    Manuvering the paper from the sandwich
    Need one hand on the wheel
    For its the traffic I must watch
    Oh ****!!!
    Some tartur sauce
    Dropped in my crotch

    Reaching for a napkin
    Of course none can be found
    Ahh...yes
    There's some in the glove box
    From when I last went out of town

    With no thought to the composition of tartur sauce
    I used a Long John Silver's napkin
    To wipe it all off
    That irony was overshadowed
    By me making a cardinal sin
    In wiping it off
    I just smeared it all in

    ****
    What the hell did I do?
    I made it worse
    Now I've got to go home
    Got to think fast
    I'll be there soon
    Let me pull into this gas station
    And find the men's room

    Cold water with a paper towel
    That should get it out
    It will look all wet for a minute or two
    What other choice did I have
    What else could I do?

    Back in the car
    Windows open
    A/C blowin to the max
    This will be dry soon
    Then I can relax

    But no...not me
    I don't have that kind of Karma
    When I got out of the car
    There was more of this drama

    Looking down to check
    Knowing none of the sauce remained
    I yelled "****" when I discovered
    Not only was the spot still showing
    Around it was a tell-tale water stain

    Right at the location
    Where a woman's imagination and curiosity
    Forces her eye
    It looked like I'm a man of great blessings
    Who had a sexual expression
    Seen at the middle of my thigh

    How the hell will I explain this ****
    What story would work
    What story would fit
    Even though what really happened
    Is the truth
    Is legit

    Wish I had some shorts in the car
    Not that lucky
    But oh how I wish
    Hell
    Any story about the stains
    Is made more complicated
    By the smell of fish...Hummm

    Hopefully
    Prayerfully
    No one is home
    I can sneak in
    Change my pants
    This I can do
    If I'm all alone


    Yes, Yes, Yes!
    It worked out that way
    Just one of God's blessings
    He graced me with that day
    Whew!!!!!!!!!!!

    BE
