This one a wreck but was still mine for a short time...(I wish AD would get rid of the editor thingy below)





The Torino GT wrecked

Still needed to get to work

So out dad & I went to the dealer

Its there we did find its replacement

All day it took as we got it checked…


The paint faded from the sun

Much the color of this poem, this one

I remember little about it, not sure why

What I do remember was when you pushed it

The old wreck did haul up for second then stalled & died...


She was a 66’ Oldsmobile Delmont 88

I guess we saved her for a bit from her eventual fate

The crusher did do her in someday in her future

She was an old wreck, but in her carb she was first rate…J

"Thingy"? I didn't see a "thingy" anywhere, not even an itty bitty "thingy". Did you imagine this "thingy" or did you cook it up in your self-concocted concoctor? I looked it up in my online dictionary, and it replied, "are you illiterate or just stupid?" I didn't know how to respond, so I just x'ed out of the program. Do you see what a dilemna you put me in? They should have added another option to their program, like "did some squirrely guy introduce you to this new and unabridged word?" I would have felt much better if they had offered that option, but instead, I had to kill their measley little program. And now, I am a program killer. See what you've done, you squirrely guy, you! This is terrible--I may never be able to sleep again, because my conscience will probably eat my ears off. I am serious. I don't joke about my ears being eaten off.
