You are doubly offensive, first
for parking your damn Subaru
without a permit in a zone
for persons with disabilities,
too lazy to walk, too self-absorbed,
distracted by #fuckedup, forgot
what that painted blue wheelchair
stands for. Second violation,
ripping up the ticket, throwing it
on the ground, blatantly
littering. Yes,

that was me, badge #3082 Ontario Power,
authority to tell your line manager and to make you
pay for general vehicle infractions, waste,
and stupidity.
