He drove so slow, Death
got out to walk.

* * *

It saves on cleaning,
because he doesn’t raise dust.

* * *

Everybody was so friendly;
they all waved, but real
cool-like with just one finger.

* * *

Sometimes, he liked to race old
Grampa Taylor; he usually
won now that Grampa was dead.

* * *

Hard to tell if he’s going
forwards or backwards until
somebody lays on the horn.

* * *

When the horizon comes up
too fast, he gets scared he might
fall off the Earth and miss supper.
