Die Free

I followed
a car
thru town
today
that had
a customized
license plate
that read
DIE FREE
& three
fist-waving
bumper stickers.

 

One
sticker read
I LOVE TO
CLEAR CUT!
superimposed
over a
stripped
mountainside
with a
solitary
pine tree
at the top.

 

Another said
GRADUATE OF
THE SCHOOL OF
HARD KNOCKS
with the
Confederate
flag on
one side
of this
proclamation
& a
man dressed
in camouflage
wielding an
assault rifle
on the other.

 

The third
depicted a
whale
with a
harpoon
ripping
into one
side of
its head
& out
the other.

 

The driver
of this
car is
ten times
less likely
to be a
victim of a
random traffic
check than a
field worker
with a
Mexican flag
decal the
size of a
postcard in
the lower
right corner
of his
rear window.
