I saw a bunch of little green men on the highway.

They were surrounding a car.

Their trucks and cars were all over the road.

Blocking the slow lane.

Surrounding a fancy car.

There were a lot of them.

Where did they all come from?

The Lincoln Highway runs across the nation.

From coast to coast.

Times Square to San Francisco.

Right close to Chicago, too.

Anyone can drive it.

I wonder who?

I saw a county sheriff’s car.

And a lot of black unmarked vehicles.

Were some of Trump’s boys there?

Could they be around?

Or, was it just a regular Friday.

In an urban town.
