The Not Cash Cab

Friday night, I was travelling from Clinton Hill to Prospect Park.  Also know as my sisters apartment to my place.  Brie, Mokey and I were looking to get home quickly so I flagged down a cab.  Now, whenever I flag down a cab in NYC I am always secretly hoping it'll be the cash cab.  Well this wasn't a van so I knew it wouldn't be the cash cab.  But I also didn't think it was going to be a ministry on wheels, driven by a slightly crazy man who called himself Pastor Phil, that was called Rolling for Jesus.  But wouldn't you know it, it was.

Tea With Madame Bovary

Mme. Bovary, I do not like you 
(But I appreciate your visit.) 
You’re overblown 
And speak of nothing 
Still, I treasure your company. 
I’m expecting a visit from Don Quixote 
(He’s meeting me at the White Castle) 
He has things to say. 
You could learn from him, Madame. 
Still, I treasure your company. 
I think it’s time you leave 
There are other I must meet 
Sherlock’s in the shithouse shooting up 
And Godot’s waiting for me 
Still, I treasure your company.
