My dying van

my carriage of steel
I enjoyed being
behind your wheel

you took me places
of which I’m fond
to the known
the remote and far beyond

you guided me
and carried me far
my dependable confidant
my faithful car

you may be crushed
but you’ll understand
you had to go
amazing friend

we’ve shared some miles
over the years
I say goodbye
I am all in tears

Miss Hayworth

a saucy beast
wanted to feast
put on a dress
but it got creased
when she fell
rolled in the hay
all messed up
to her dismay

her date arrived
a gentle man
his name was Laurel
but she called him Stan

she jumped his bones
and rode him hard
he just laughed
no disregard…
