I drove my car and my heart was a little bit broken
A brief siren, flashing lights, hardly a word spoken.
Driver’s License and proof of insurance from the glove box.
Hiding in front of a gated community. where the cop stops
Velocity on Highway 40, changing lanes and green lights past
Creve Coeur officer claims --- “You’re going too fast.”
“Really, you got me timed on a half mile stretch of road?”
Nothing will stop him from completing this quota load
Paperwork says more than one hundred bucks I should pay.
A citation at high noon on a November Sunday.
A speed trap - this isn’t Rock Hill? I’m just sayin’
Who really wins in such a frivolous violation?
The lawyer, in 30 days time, --- revenue he will see.
The judge will be faced with a December docket and a plea
Amended ticket, off the record, status quo
Don’t argue. Get a lawyer – It’s the place to go
Time will pass and the leaves will fall.
No point, no points, best of all.
