Big Black Dodge 4x4 4dr Pick-up

A Chapter by Dave Brown



The work day started really poorly

I was summarily laid off from my job

Although it was a Covid type thingy

I still felt as though I had been robbed


Fortunately, I got work at the grocery store

Dealing with vegetables and cantaloupe

And after the manager had watched a while

He gave me a large envelope


Which told me to take a coffee break

During which I got into a water fight

But with water spraying my glasses

It much increased my far sight


Unfortunately, the water machine broke

Filling the coffee room with rising water

I just shut the door walking quickly away

After tweeting the manager’s daughter


They gave me a black 4x4 Dodge pick-up

This was the four-door model, extreme

It was jammed with carrots and turnips

Making me a part of the vegetable team


I was contacted by famous film stars

Even Rob Ross’s ex-hairstylist sent an order

Cancelled, since he owned black 4x4 Fords

Anyhow, I couldn’t cross over the border


Sadly, I was fired the very next day

I heard the coffee room manager had drowned

However, I stole away that black 4x4 pick-up

It being one of so many, I’ve never been found

Something about this disjointed story reminds me of my neighbor the hoarder. He moved away about 2 years ago & rented his place to some sorry sucker who's paying market price to live among his wall-to-wall, fence-to-fence junk. He's supposed to be clearing it, but I've lived here for 10 yrs & he never reduces the junk, but he just moves it around the property, restacking as if it might look like less junk, then sweeping all the oak leaves from acres of dirt & piling them up against the place. One day he pulled up in a brand new red van with the logo of a nearby Monterey magazine on the side & he loaded it up with some of his junk & drove away. This guy is a total train wreck & he can't hold a job, so maybe he went to work for this magazine & then "borrowed" their van to haul some of his junk. Shortly afterwards, he drove his classic VW bus down here & parked it among the other dozen junky vehicles & trailers on the property, then he started sleeping in his van there, even tho he's renting this property to a single mother & her 3 sorta-grown kids. In short, he probably got fired for using the company van & that's where my long weird story & your even weirder story seem to have some vague harmonics. But maybe I've not smoked sufficient pot this morning to really follow your storyline. One of these days I've got to write the story of my neighbor the hoarder. I've got enuf material for a book now (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
