Ice Cream Honeymoon

On a sunny day
in Harvard Yard
blonde from Norway weds
son of chieftain
from Rwanda after
both receive degrees
with high honors.

They drive off
in a silver Porsche
touring America
on their honeymoon
until they’re stopped
in a small town.
A taillight’s out.

The officer says
“You’re the first
salt and pepper
I’ve ever ticketed”
and the bride says
“Sir, we’re your first
hot fudge sundae.”
