SHE TOOK ME FOR A RIDE a drive by poem by Flyrod

When I first peered through that showroom glass
I knew she was all about grace and class

When they made her they broke the mold
This elegant model of black and gold

The perfect blend of long clean lines
Like a red-carpet model dressed to the nines

An attraction sparked by pure desire
A symbol of status I must acquire

The object of so many stares and grins
She had those long and graceful fins

Her surface aglow with luster and sheen
She was a car that was built to be seen

She touched the ground with wheels of gold
In elegant style, that’s how she rolled

Under her hood a legendary Hemi V-8
With that kind of power I’d never be late

An instant cure for one who was bored
Now I would surely be so adored

How great to have everything I want
That DeSoto car I’d readily flaunt

They always say, “easy come easy go”
The thrill was short lived, how would I know

Life was so grand, at least for a while
In three years time she would be out of style

I guess you could say, “she took me for a ride”
I made the last payment and swallowed my pride

An idiot defined makes the same mistake twice
But oh…Wouldn’t that brand new Lincoln be nice?
