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
