The Dirge of the Dodge


The Dodge is dead.

The Dodge is dead.

Dead lies the Dodge on the roadside.

A bullet-bolt through its bowels,

A single clunk signaling

The end of Big Red.

Big Red has new friends now, gone to his reward

The “We’ll Take Anything” donation program

Offers complementary towing.

We’ll think of Red next tax season

As he delivers us




And we will forget that this 1973 model

Is older by only

One Year

Than Dwayne and me.
