carpool tunnel syndrome

i imagine travis bickle driving
grady tripp riding shotgun
and i’m between the dude and the duke

we are veering between stoner talk
and men of violence who make me want to walk
listening to johnny cash, the circle unbroken

this is a western, this is a noir
sometimes you eat the bar
and sometimes, well, you know

how do you expect it to go?
it is an uneven flow
and we have a way to go

dude doesn’t like the eagles
grady popped a pill
travis is getting pissed
and the duke is feeling ill
am i going to have to foot the bill?

i ask them to stop the car and let me out
they look at me like the don’t what it’s about
but they do it anyway
and the carpool rolls off on its way
