The Case of the Murderous Muffler #FoundPoem

Ah, Corydon Democrat Live Wire call-in column! How do I love thee? It’s like living in a graphic novel or sumpin.

Killer Muffler

by Anonymous Caller

I’ve wondered when
Harrison County’s finest
is going to do something
about these illegal cars
running up and down the road
without mufflers
on their vehicle.
It’s making your life and my life
unsafe.
I think it’s time
to do something about it
because
there sure is a lot of them
riding around town.

Cars in cars! Deadly criminal cars in cars! And who, exactly, is Harrison County’s finest? I hope it isn’t I, because I wouldn’t know how to go about arresting a car, if that’s what Anonymous Caller wants done. Where would you even put the handcuffs? If the problem is the noise, does Anonymous Caller want someone to shoot the cars (or their vehicles or their mufflers) with a silencer?

I’m all agog.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a vegan cheese that is actually good!

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Write about a car without a muffler. Or a person without a muffler. Or noise.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
