driving while under the influence
it was three AM and I hit
the blinking yellow light
on the route three rotary near Drum Hill
we got out quick
to throw away beer cans
and then I backed up the car a bit
and tried to go forward
but the car wouldn't go forward
so I backed up around the rotary
into a gas station
I figured I could put my car
in the row of cars already there
and nobody would notice right?
I get out and hide behind but
by this time I can see the flashing lights
and it was really something
the police cruiser goes around the rotary
take the exit I took
and comes right to me
I was alone all my friends split
and they get me for leaving the scene
driving under the influence
and being a minor in possession
all kinds of stuff right?
I asked the guy found me
how'd you catch me?
he said he followed the leaking radiator
it leaked after the crash right?
fifty million dumb cops in the world
and this guy
has to be a genius

*by the way, "I asked the guy found me"
is how the line reads in the book
