MATRIMONIAL MELODIES: 5. SPEAKING OF DRIVING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I do not mind your telling me
Last Line: Damn it, my dear—as well as you can.
Subject(s): Driving & Drivers


I do not mind your telling me
To watch that fellow in the flivver,
Or crying "Heavens! Can't you see
That traffic cop—I'm all aquiver!"

I don't get mad when you assume
I'm in a fog, or dozing, maybe,
And won't give lots of space and room
For any woman with a baby.

When you assume I'll run amuck
I keep my calm, as very few can,
—But I can see a ten-ton truck
Damn it, my dear—as well as you can.
