The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
BLACK WIDOW SPIDERA drive-by poem by Flyrod
On a backcountry road rests a dormant black truckApproach it with caution and don’t push your luck
The fogged over window hides a secret insideThe corps of a driver who took his last ride
He bought this new toy only three days agoIt bore a dark history that he didn’t know
He wasn’t the first; in fact there were sevenWho with him reside in car lover’s heaven.
Curvaceous fenders and a plunging front grillGave many a man a heart pounding thrill
The seat belt and harness would hold him in placeWhile the Edelbrook motor was setting the pace
No crushed metal or sharp broken glassNo asphyxiation from vapors or gas
A little pinprick from the back of the seatInto his veins the venom would seep
When the Ford was rebuilt with new paint and chromeAn eight-legged female would make it her home
She lusted for men and into their heartShe lunged with a sharpened little black dart
As the lifeless body sat there beside herHer work was complete, that Black Widow Spider
Beautiful work! Love it!!!
Thanks a million Vigor.
