I check my left.
I check my right.
I check the rearview.
No cop in sight.

I push it down
Onto the floor.
All I ask,
A little more.

It’s pushing redline.
The pressure’s good.
Only I know
What’s beneath the hood.

Half way there,
And going strong.
Hold him off.
It won’t take long.

She starts to swerve.
I grab the stick.
Oh my God!
Another wreck!

Back to the shop
She must go.
It’s for the ride
I love her so.
