Four Cars Take Up a Lot of Space (a Pantoum)

The driveway is too crowded

Four cars take up a lot of space

Every person in my house can drive now

Good thing pets can’t be licensed

 

There are four cars in my driveway

I have to wait for someone to move so that I can go to the store

If the dogs and the cat could drive I’d have to wait even longer

Supper would never get cooked

 

Someone has to move his car so I can go to the store

I’ve told them all to never block me in

Supper is always cooked late

Drive-thru Chinese food is starting to sound like the perfect plan

 

They know better than to block me in

I’ve been forced to wait beyond what is reasonable

I want my beef and broccoli, crab rangoons, extra egg roll, and fortune cookie now

First I call for Chinese food then I’m calling a tow-truck

 

The driveway is too crowded

Every person in my house can drive now
