It's The Law!
While riding the city transit bus yesterday, the heavyset woman sitting next to me was eating a corned beef sandwich (on rye, with mustard). She wasn't dainty or demure about it either, she was shoving it into the hole in her face and chewing noisily, smacking her lips, licking her fingers, a ring of yellow mustard was around her fat lips.
- munch - chew- slurp- smack ! munch - chew- slurp- smack !
They were giggling, singing along, having a grand old time.
- A few times I been 'round dat track
So it not gonna happen like dat
Cuz I ain't no holla back girl!
I looked toward the front of the bus and I saw, as plain as day, a sign which read:
No eating, drinking, smoking
Or playing radios without earphones
It's The law!
(I didn't, of course, but I thought about it very, very hard!)
