Economical Motoring

Economical Motoring

A Chapter by Dave Brown

hybrid happenin


I botta Prius hybrid, green and grey

Then motored long the new freeway

These things have become of age

Because of their excellent, mileage


Realizing they don’t really go too fast

Still, to get by a slower car I attempted a pass

Along with the Semi-truck with trailer behind me

Who also pulled out, apparently blindly


These little cars aren’t quick to accelerate

But not so of that great heavyweight

And before I could say, “big bad bald bird’s bent brown bill’

I became a decoration on that Semi’s grill


And on that grill where I was to reside

I was taken for a fuel free ride

A situation which was definitely of benefit to me

As it further enhanced my MPG

I sincerely hope this was your wonderful imagination at play and did not reflect a true happening :) That would have been most painful for heart and pocket. I am running my car into the ground before I contemplate parting with mega bucks. A warm afternoon on the river here. Have a lovely day Dave.
