Midnight Geometry Test

I can’t draw a straight line
with a ruler,
dead sober,
150 watts bursting glass seams,
on any given day,
if my life depended on it!
But, you want me to walk one,
pitch dark,
dead drunk,
headlights whizzing by.
Sir, would it be acceptable
if I crawled
from point A to B?

Like the quote from Men In Black, "No mam, we at the FBI do not have a sense of humor that we are aware of."

Pat, I like this. It's really funny. I wonder if I could walk that line under those conditions, with nerves and knees all a-shaking, with police breathing down my neck, dead sober. Don't think so.
