prompt image

the old car,

we named her

Summertime Blues,

tired of A Hard Day’s Night,

she trekked to warmer climes

to join the Surfin’ Safari,

a reunion of Road Hog alums, and

she had A Ticket to Ride.

She was equipped with a GPS,

as old as the hills, and

couldn’t Get Back due

to an obsolete font.

She ended up in

a heap of trouble

in the Mississippi River

but not to worry,

Summertime Blues,

A Custom Machine,

Come Together with

Mustang Sally and

Proud Mary and

have Fun, Fun, Fun,

while rollin’

rollin’ down the river with

No Particular Place to Go
