The next in line for them, is Ford Exploders...

Buicks are for OLD people…


Fedora hats and white hair,

All that can be seen in the drivers seat,

Are they able to see between the wheel and dash?

That’s all they need to avoid a crash…J


They do drive their Buicks at slow speed,

Better to get a ticket for going too slow,

Than to race around, the speed limit to exceed,

Hell, in a boat, I go faster when I do row…J


They never seem to look in their mirrors,

Why worry what’s behind, just what’s up front,

Some I have seen with a cigar in their mouth, a blunt,

Others do hold the wheel with all their strength,

Putting on the brake pedal with a audible grunt…J


Guess I will be there all too soon,

But I got to say, no Buicks for me, but maybe you,

Maybe by then the old drivers will have a clue,

If not I will be there to rush them on to their inevitable end,

Therein I will have to say that that end is quite long overdue… L

i heard a spinoff of blue eyes crying in the rain named 'blue hairs driving in my lane' and this reminded me of it. i intend to dye my hair steel blue and go on bingo bus tours when i reach the right age, so i won't be in one of those buicks

HO HO! By any chance have you seen me dear old Mum cruisin out and about in her Buick?! She recently bought a new one - same exact color and style as her last one - I entered her house through her garage and walked right past it without even realizing it was new. And she was very upset that I hadn't noticed.

PS Leave them Explorers alone, Bucko!
