now I knew
the stop sign wasn't optional

but considering
it was a four way stop
and there were no
other vehicles in
my line of sight

I slowed down enough
to acknowledge the stop sign
and continued on my way
until I noticed the
flashing lights
in my rear view mirror

the cop, after taking
my license, did not seem
impressed that I had
at least been considerate
enough to slow down

I don't see what the
difference between slowing
down and stopping is
I muttered ruefully

I understand
the cop said, but,
tell you what,
in about a second I'm
gonna take this night stick
out and start beating
the living shit out of you

then you tell me
you want me to stop
or slow down
