A Chapter by Dave Brown



Last night, took my skateboard

Out for a ride

Screaming down black streets

How quickly I flied

But got goin too fast

So, reachin out

Grabbed a wrapped hay bale

One of many

From a huge wide field

Using it for balance

A sort of desperate thing

On the off chance

I might badly wipe out

But it was filled with laundry, not hay

And although this looked like a ranch  

It was a laundromat

With filthy clothes in the bale

That were a grease and grime habitat


Looking back to see

I was still being pursued

And that bucha pursuers looked like

They were all in a really bad mood


The laundry bag split open

With filthy clothes spilled everywhere

And as I accelerated away  

I shot another look back

Then stopped to stare

Seeing people shivering in the laundromat

Cuz they had no clothing to wear

Most people wipe out with surfboards. Only a Canadian would do it with a hay bale.
