BP: During an Emergency

I wrote this one while sitting on the subway on the way to some party or other (the Beacon one, perhaps? I have no idea) and thought it was funny. But it’s not; it’s just sad. Anyway, the first line of the poem is also the title and the first three lines are a sign that’s posted on every subway car. Just so you know.

During an emergency
please follow the
instructions of the operator.
Do not jump from the car
in a panic and by all means
do not make shit up.

This is an emergency, not poetry.
