Monday June 17 2008...At The Side Of The I-10 in Baton Rouge LA...8.21 a.m.
I've been stuck since friday,
Because I had no fuel
I was told I had some,
I didn't I was fooled!
I tried the card it didn't work,
I called and then they said,
'There ain't no money on the card,
We'll call you!' I said, 'When?'
Nobody did call me,
No answer did I get
When I tried to call them,
No answer came and yet
I called and called and called and called,
No messages could be left!
They are not set up for them
And they left me bereft!
I called on early staurday morn',
I asked about the fuel
The answer that I got from them
Could be construe d as cruel!
'You've got fuel on your card!' said he,
No names, no pack-drill facts
'There's fuel on card so use it!'
And then he said, 'THAT'S THAT!"
Ok That's that, 'course I was late
For picking up the load
If I'd fueled when
When they first told me,
I'd be miles on up the road!
So I was stuck the whole weekend
A Happy Father's Day?
Well not a word from both my kids
And furthermore no pay!
So monday morning I set off
Oil Pressure light it blinked
Protect The Engine light as well
And I've cold tea to drink!
I called and called and called and called
I got one he'll call back
So here I sit a-scribbling
This alien scribbling hack
It's 11.25 in the a.m. and no sign of road service yet, it's 95 degrees in the truck, I would have liked a sauna, but the truck don't got a plunge pool! Bummer!
