Donut Shop Hero

More anti-police-state poetry. Resistance comes in many forms...

Donut Shop Hero
(Spoof on John Lennon's Working Class Hero)

http://www.stephen-devoy.com/poetry/images/DonutCop.jpg

As soon as you're at work
They make you feel small
Demanding a donut while
Paying nothing at all

While paying customers
Wait in a line
The men in blue
Cut in from behind

A donut shop hero is something to be
A donut shop hero is something to be

"Give me a coffee
Give me some joe
Last time I asked for a cruller
You gave me a hole"

"Listen boy,
I'm talking to you.
Make it quick
I'm the man in blue."

A donut shop hero is something to be
A donut shop hero is something to be

Pissed as you are
You think up something quick
And substitute milk
With cream from your dick

You stir it real well
He won't have a clue
"Have a good day, officer,
Nice talking to you!"

A donut shop hero is something to be
A donut shop hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero, just follow me...

(If the above leaves you aghast, you have no sense of humor)
