Black leather cap
Crisp white shirt
Black socks, white polka dots
bright against the background.
The driver counts tickets
Passes out stickers
"Don't leave him!" he laughs when a mother
states her 4 year old
wasn't given a ticket.
A career of field trips, I think
watching as he recounts
wondering how often a guest is left behind
Laughing as one and another guest leaves
for trash dumping or bathroom use.
Recalling classroom trips
Managing 200+ teens
Counting and Recounting
All accounted for...fingers crossed.
Polka dot socks closes the door
And away we go!
