Sunday Morning “Bondo” Time

There’s been a multi-beer pile-up,
just above my furrowed brow.
Somewhere between 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.,
the NASCAR whooping,
butt wiggling,
tight jean ogling,
crowd crooning cowboy,
made several lane changes
from Mardi Gras Olympiad,
to snore-weaving,
Stonehenge-recliner, exhibit “A”, and
back again
to “tell me I didn’t do that” reality.
The only thing left to do
is pull the mangled mess,
of crunched up beer cans,
through my throbbing forehead, and
bondo another dull, gray patch
over thin fenders of toilet-promises,
already swirling away.

Who knows what a fun time we've had? Unfortunately there's always someone around who remembers, maybe a Polaroid or two.

Thanks for the link!

funny... like it! took me several readings though, and a dictionary, to fully understand this. Hate those language barriers!
