My Automotive Adventures: A Sonnet to my Green Ford Mustang on our Anniversary

by | Sep 28, 2014 | Editorial

I’ll let you know if I ever decide to go shopping for another car. In the meantime I’d like to share with you a poem I wrote three years ago when my green Ford Mustang and I celebrated 20 years together.
Anniversary Song

Twenty years and they all make fun
And call my loyalty misguided.
But haven’t we had a glorious run
That surely ought not be derided?
You’re still pristine, inside and out;
You run just like a well-groomed mare.
I’ve never had a moment’s doubt
That what we have is truly rare.
You respond so gladly to my touch;
I keep you satisfied and sleek.
You don’t require all that much
Beyond your sustenance once a week.
The most gorgeous one I’ve ever seen –
My ninety-one Mustang in deep jewel green.
