Wonder Poem


She was a rockhard
Firm chassied, sleek
Chic, two toned
Wonder of a poem

Her smile could
turn you on a dime
Make you feel that
You've been left undone

She had a way
with her words
That made me
smile now in my tears

Her rear end
Never shimmied
Her trunk never
left undone

Her steering wheel
Was a half 'C'
And made up a
perfect curve

Her wheels were firmly
planted and
she never missed
the curves

Her dual exhausts
Made all in chrome
Under pressure
made her growl

Her six speed
Powertrain now
was made to
make you squeal

She could throw
you back into you seat
On takeoff
Oh, now with such a force

She knew of
Only one thing
And that was how
She was going to lead

Her glass was
Crystaline clear
Everything inside
You could see my dear

One word you
Never saw
And that word now
Was to 'hide'

Yes when it came it came
To performance
She came out
Dressed to kill

That's now my
Wonder poem
And it's time I
Give her all the gas
