Love police

“Hold it right there!

Where is your id?

Step out the clouds of pink sky, please!

Did you know you just

abused the words there, sir?

And you had a speed

higher than feelings allow”

Then he looks at me and says:

“Where is YOUR heart-belt, by the way?”

“Let me see your license”

He says to my pair

“you see sir, this license has expired

Right there and then while you were

lying like a master

you can’t drive on the love street from now on”
