A poem for the "Florida man."

Florida man, Florida man,
great head of hair, studio tan,
if I were hitching in the Everglades
and you pulled up, Id be afraid.

I wouldnt climb into your minivan,
your swampmobile, O Florida man.
Id wait for a ride with an honest trucker.
Anyone but you, you sleazy fucker.

1. I know you watch Tucker. Halitosis and Cirrhosis. Oh, Florida Man.

Iambic Pentameter is extremely difficult within this Ode.
