Highway Sign

The state trooper saw her coming,
She was driving way too slow.
Everyone behind was honking,
Trying to get her to go.

He clocked her going twenty-three.
She would get somebody killed!
All the drivers stuck behind her,
He could see, were not too thrilled.

So he stopped her and told her
She was driving much too slow.
She said, “Well isn’t that how fast
That sign there says I should go?”

She pointed to the highway sign,
It read, “Highway 23”.
He said, “That’s the highway number,
Just how stupid can you be?”

Her passenger could hardly speak,
Her face was a sickly green.
In shaky voice she said to him,
“We just got off of 119!”
