HORN HAPPY HARRY(IET)S
By John Ross Harvey
You know the type
The light turns green
And regardless of what’s in front of you
This guy/girl from 4 cars back will HONK
0.0000000000000000000000000000001s after it turned green
Could be a fire truck coming
A pedestrian walking
(How inhuman is that behaviour?)
Or traffic may just not be moving
Like a blocked Intersection or Highway Volume
But HORN HAPPY HARRY(IET) has to HONK
If their lane has ended and they’ve yet to signal out
They will HONK like we’re supposed to let them in.
You will be backing out of a parking space
And because they feel you’re in their way
They will HONK
Instead of letting you out.
They will go to find their friend in an apartment complex
Where a call button gizmo is useful
And HONK from the driveway, like 500 other people aren’t listening.
Just once I’d like to see these HHH’s honk at a cop
The unmarked variety so it’s a real shock to their system.
Maybe they’ll finally learn patience.
But that’s impossible
Just like skiing through a revolving door
