Parallel Parking

by pome lover

“Oka-ay… gotta parallel park… 
No problemo – used to be pretty good at this…
I'm coming up from behind,
Turn right at their front fender…turning…
Stupid light in side mirror going berserk…(new car, new gadget)
Back up, pull out a little to try again. 
Oops, sorry lady.  SORRY LADY!
Okay, out far enough; turn! 
Easy does it.  
Don’t go too far, you’ll hit the ... oops … curb. 
Okay, back just a little…
I’m going to have a heart attack. 
If I ding this new car I’m going to kill myself. 
Turn, sharp left…easy does it… now, 
WOW, almost got it…
The guy is getting in the car in front of me…
He’s laughing at me!
He’s bugging out. Fast.
Of all the nerve. 
I almost had it.”
