my jalopy

I'd like to find a jalopy
used or pre-owned no matter
but she has to be traveled and
able to start in the morning
her motor softly rumbling and
only leaks a little when used
her radio'd play the old tunes
and be up-to-date enough to
know a few of the new ones

we'd ride the back roads
past the old ways and woulds
turn toward the big city
to go and see some show
I'd buy a token and we'd
cross the bridge to populace
grandly we'd ride to town and
see the sidewalks stop briefly
as I'd steer her hand and hand

Yep!!! Love how you made me feel like I was actually reading about a "prospective woman" laugh
But...Im gonna go with the jalopy (car,truck)...just because if I had an ol pickup,she would certainly make me feel like this too.Well a male one but then again...I have called all my cars,trucks...Bessie love ok Im confusing myself now laugh
I really enjoyed this light hearted piece that can be perceived in not only one way.
