 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

The very people we expect
to protect us from scams are scam artists
The Police photo scam
You were caught driving 28pH miles in a 20 school zone
$240 pay to Federal Way Municipal Court,Tempe, Arizona
My Honda was driving in the State of Washington
The car was photoed nothing near it for a hundred yards
School let out 3:15 Pm photo taken 3:1501 Pm
In the State of Washington and cross walk was empty
The kids had not left school
The infraction reads:
Send the fine to Cincinnati or Arizona photo enforcement
You wish to appeal Arizona Enforcement program
Yeah right?
Guess who gets most of the $240?
City of Federal Way had two drive by killings this week

One of our two listed drivers on list misspelled
I am appealing that either Honda,, Odyssey or Dpolan was driving
My wife or I have not had a violation traffic or otherwise in forty years
Every second driver we pass has a loaded pistol, a puppy on their lap,
or drunk on drugs or has a cellphone in their hand
or all of the above
But Cincinnati photo enforcement sees a 79 and 73
year old driver driving excessively at 28 miles per hour
