The Parking Spot Less Parked In*

Two parking spots left in a parking lot
and sorry I could not park in both
And be one driver, long I stood
In the parking lot my landlords barely plowed
Beacuse they are a bunch of incompetent b-holes.

Then parked in the spot that was closest to me
and this perhaps was a bad idea
because it was snowier than the other spot
though as for that, the lack of plow
had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
in a lot that had been barely plowed
Oh, I kept the other for another day
Since I could not turn without fishtailing,
I doubted if I could get into the other.

I am now telling this with a sigh
Arriving a full two hours late for work
Two parking spots in a lot, and I --
I took the one that was less plowed
And was frozen the fuck in this morning.

A coworker sent me your poem after hearing about my nearly identical plight this morning. Many thanks for a much-needed laugh in an otherwise totally frustrating situation! :)
