A Very Dirty Deal Ii - Poem by Bill Grace

As one who owned three Chevrolet Vegas
My loyalty to: 'Buy American' - can not be deeply questioned.
Aunt Eleanor's lectures on balance of payments
Struck a deeper mark than she would ever have guessed.
The Vega despite its 'Car of the Year' status
Was a General Motors disaster.

If memory serves correctly
The press didn't seem to want to talk about it.
So, their recent drubbing of Toyota was of interest.
Perhaps the issue even greater than who owns them
Is if you have forgiven Yamamoto.

Note in Explication Isoroku Yamamoto was the Japanese admiral who engineered the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor that galvanized American entry into World War II.
