Take a Peek

I'm here for the ad, young man
I believe it was your father I spoke to
on the phone about an hour ago
Said I was coming by to look at the car on sale
Sure, I'll wait ...
by the way, that's a lovely Christmas tree in the window
(A minute or two later)
Hi, Mr. Bartier,
I'm here for the car that I saw in the ad
You sure painted a nice picture,
truth be told, it almost sounded too good
So do you mind, if I may,
take a peek under the hood
Engine looks clean, motor sounds fine
It hums real low
(Speaking to myself ... that price is beginning to look like a steal)
This auto has a retiree feel,
do you mind if I get behind the wheel
Interior is like new,
and the gauges and gadgets all work too
And the mileage is less than the height
of a Mt. Everest view
Do a final spot check on the underbody,
no leaking fluids ... suspension seems solid
Well, Mr. Bartier,
here's what I think:
This car is as good as advertised,
the price is phenomenally low,
and your maintenance has the vehicle looking
like it just came from a new car expo
Only got one question though ...
it's about the trunk,
with the rug covering all those bullet holes
