This happened the other day

Driving home from work,
Driving in picturesque suburbia,
Giving that volume knob a friendly turn to the left,
Trees all along the streets,
Nice cars polluting nicely,
& I see a father and his kids,
Scooters and helmets.
Lookin like Michaels, Scotts, and Matthews,
But before I can smile at this
Boyish whiteness,
I see the father take the scooter
& shove it towards his son,
Shove it hard and angrily,
To show that this is no longer fun.
I roll down the window
& yell out : "You dick!"
