Jeez Louise, That’s Just Mean

the road,
you must feel
special
riding your bikes,
future
lance armstrong’s.
Truth is,
you’re a bunch of douche bags

and like the jay
w
a
l
k
e
r
s
at king and james
or
every damn street
in
toronto

feeling
special and
important
because you’re
even
p
u
s
h
i
n
g a baby carriage

REMEMBER,

more likely than
not,
you’re going
to
lose the fight
against
a
half
t
o
n
ne
vehicle

and the guy
who
feels
guilty as hell
for
running into
you,

won’t get charged

because you
were
in the wrong

and

both your lives
are
forever changed.

So,

take your self righteous marching

and just

S
T
O
P

you know, like
you’re
supposed to do
at a 4-way

the vast majority of
the
surrounding
public,

feel
very little pity
towards
you

and

s

c
r
e
t
ly,

there’s a few locals
who
are glad it
