(Quatrains of Iambic Tetrameter)
Off now to field of shiny shapes—Sheet metal, sculpted, polished, bright—In shades of orange, cherry, grape,With toothy grilles and blinding lights.
We worship motorcars this day—You know, the ones one must still driveRather than let them choose the way.Most times, one still arrives alive.
Our kind tends to be old and graying.Our cars were better—simple fact—And despite what the news is saying,Autonomous cars don’t attract.
Pry my dead hands off steering wheelAnd shifter knob! I dare you to!We’ll duke it out and you will feelWhat old man’s knuckles can still do.
My Buick’s almost old as I.Carbon footprint of dinosaur.But its sharp style draws folks like fliesAnd gets the nods that I adore.
So please excuse. It’s time to roll,To join the flock and raise a glassTo cars that still have heart and soulAnd, to these old eyes, lots of class.
