Madame C And The Cop Go To The Mall
Balladeer, thanks for the adorable poem about my driving and my eyesight...but this is the TRUE story, and thanks so much, Mysteria...for helping me with the picture.
When Madame C went out to shop
she got pulled over by a cop
it looked like no one was driving her car
a bright shiny pink convertable Jaguar
so he pulled alongside and couldn't beleive, a chipmunk was at the wheel
he made her stop and he asked her, "hey chip, now what's the deal"?
she said "I must get to the mall, where my new eyeglasses await
and if I don't get em soon, I will turn into housecat bait"
I need sharp vision to see that cat
or I'll be his dinner and he'll get fat
so the cop said "Ms.Chipmunk, with such bad eyes
its not such a good idea to drive"
so she said "Mr.Cop, will you help me please?
afterall I'm a chipmunk with a pedigree
please get in and give me a ride
and my remarks will become less snide"
so the cop and the chipmunk went to the mall
where they looked like the oddest couple of all
