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.

    Blue Moon for Chucky
    A drive-by poem by Flyrod

    I happened seven times in nineteen years
    When a Blue Moon night heightens the fears

    When the darkness is split by rumbling sounds
    As a thirty two Ford is making his rounds

    In search of the lost who might need a ride
    To fill up that seat on the passenger side

    A teen on the run or a down and out drifter
    Who’d be the one crowding that shifter?

    From a highway ramp a man came into view
    The shadowed Ford Driver thought, “this one will do”

    As the rider got in and eased back the seat
    A cold chill was felt from his head to his feet

    “Thanks for the lift”, he said, “My name is Chuck.”
    “I guess I’ve walked miles without any luck.”

    He heard the door lock as the Ford pulled away
    The driver said, “Boy, this ain’t your day”

    Twenty, then fifty, now eighty miles an hour
    That open wheeled monster was showing his power

    The driver said, “This is the shuttle to Hell”
    “It’ll do you no good to scream or to yell”

    “You wished on a Blue Moon for what you desired

    A Freighliner hit you, and now your expired.”
