Last Car


Looking for a new car

a new used car that is

the wife says

make it a good one

at your age

it's the last car you'll ever buy


I give her a worried look

what did she mean by that?

am I that close?


I have not been to the doctor for years

I have not been hospitalized

so what is she implying

I don't even want to think about it


maybe she's thinking

that the new guy

would like a nice car


I'll just stay over here

and keep quiet


the words

"this may be your last car"

still ringing in my head.

A little bit of flirt

She was slim and smart with plenty of charm,
Chatty and friendly confident and calm.
She'd come to see me to plant a seed,
By the end of the meeting I was her dog on a lead.

She crossed her legs and was a bit of a flirt,
She did it with her eyes and a very short skirt.
She signed me up for my last car,
No swear words or smoke from a cigar.
No footie talk or offer of a drink,
A little bit of flirt was her success I think.

But it wasn't my last car,I put it into reverse,
Crashed into a bus,ended up in a hearse.
I'm up there in heaven happy and proud .
Driving with the angels up in the clouds.

dk in a driverless ?
Dearie dearie me
He still will need instructions
Where it's battery be

I've heard dk you buy them
From same instructions shop
Make sure they match your model
Or driverless stay stop

I'm full of great suggestions
(But Thalia thinks I'm nuts)
I'll have you still know dk that
I'm true, no ifs or buts

I don't like driverlesses Ruth. They mow down Skippys...😎

Check the kitchen for sharp implements and hide them. When she gives you a coffee insist she tries it first and refuse to wear ties or scarves. Then you should be ok for the time being.

"This might be you last car"
Sounds bit ominous
Maybe you'd worry not so much
By riding in bus...😎.

the older you get
the more likely you won't be
getting much older.
