A Car Too Small

A Car Too Small

By Elton Camp

These high gas prices nearly all resent
From reasonable to scandalous it went
It’s a situation that I truly abhor
I can’t drive a Town Car anymore

To take a vacation in our SUV
Is a luxury we’ll never more see
For a Prius I was about to pay
But then I saw another way

A car so tiny that it has to run cheap
At such a bargain, I was quick to leap
It could fit the smallest parking space
But premium fuel seemed a big waste

A week’s groceries I could still buy
To fit them inside, don’t even try
The Interstate, on my route did lie
’Twas horrible being hubcap high

Every time a huge semi went by
Into the ditch, I thought I’d fly
I hurried on home with great fear
But on the way, I struck a deer

The deer laughed and ran away
In little pieces, my new car lay
Back to car-hunting with a sigh
A big Hummer I decided to buy
