Used Car Lot


I want to buy a new car
One that will take me far
That gets great miles per gallon
Makes my heart race like a stallion
One that won't break down
Or throw me around
We will treat each other well
And we will never fail

But I can't leave my old car
For so long it has been my star
We have come so very attached
So perfectly matched
But it guzzles too much gas
And other cars always pass
It hardly ever runs
And looks no longer stuns
I treat her so nice
But she won't change for the price

I don't know what to do
Thinking this through
Old car, new car
Setting star
So confused
Feeling used

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
