REALITY TV

 

The cab on the pick up truck

blew off on the Interstate.

Clothes & other crap

was blown all over

the highway.

 

A lengthy traffic jam ensued

as every moron 

and his brother

felt the need to slow down

and gawk at this poor woman

frantically trying

to recapture her possessions

littered about the road.

 

I felt bad for her 

as she had enough problems

without being a spectacle

for everyone else’s amusement.

 

The least we can do

is maybe charge a fee.

Every idiot that slows down

or stops to gawk

should be fined.

 

The money collected

can go to the victim 

as a cash retainer

for the entertainment provided.
