A pleasant fall day
out for a drive
a few errands to run
in warm afternoon

traffic was light
and the weather was good
and I thought that
everything was going good

then with my ear
I heard a strange sound
wasn't sure what was
like someone hitting a pan

as my speed it did change
so did the beating pan
had louder it slowly grew
till much too loud

carefully I drove
to a dealer where
the service man said
my engine was dead

nine thousand dollars
for a new one
my truck was worth three
when should they begin

I could not believe
what they did say
I could buy three
in stead of fixing one

my day which was so nice
had took a bad change
suddenly it was not
such a nice day

to salesman I did talk
told them of my woe
and they told me that
they had just thing

a much newer truck
in effervescent pearl
black leather seats
it included everything

a backup camera
a big V-6
like in a Camaro

zero to sixty
in seven seconds flat
gets nineteen miles
to a gallon of gas

the radio needs
as subscription
so do the controls
if to work fine

don't forget insurance
tires and oil
it all does add up
to quite a bill

but fun it is
when I punch the gas
and the engine suddenly roars
at all the people I pass

it may be
a all wheel drive
but seven inches high
no off-roading

I do miss
my transfer box
my low gear
and being so high

I guess I can live
in a equinox
with a Camaro's V-6
in effervescent pearl
