Elegy for a Road Safety Officer

(1988, parody of a Road Safety Joke.)

It was a crystal crisp, full-moon light brigh

evening, at a time when no shadows

were cast upon the land.

A man was walking

A man of import

A man was talking

A man of warning

Enlightening all

people to a point

of safety at night!

(He was a member of the Road Safety Council)

He wore a white suit, white shoes, and white hat

at night, an is no longer with us now!

It was on a crystal crisp, full-moon light bright

evening when this man, was run down

by a… snow plow.
