Breaking Down The Expense. (Part three of the misguided and maligned The Flawed Concept trilogy.) My brother bought hisself a brand new four x four, A big fat-ass fossil fuel driven automotive dinosaur, He'd avoided Fords for years but now, faith restored Dave was ready to Explore all options offered by Ford. Tall as a schoolbus, wide as a truck, black as night, This high riding heavyweight was a fearsome sight, All black upholstery, windows tinted so deeply dark This mega-sized Mothership was some bitch to park. Thank God he'd just moved out of Los Angeles, Moved on from Santa Monica's summer breeze, A black car do look good tooling down the street But it do attract the cops attention, and the Heat. But 'twas time for a new job and a bright new start So Dave lit out of LA with heavy foot and light heart; And he put the sun behind him and hot-footed it East But mile by mile, by slow degrees his unease increased. Driving into Phoenix it came as Surprise Surprise! Picking a black truck up as a first move was not wise, LA to Phoenix is right out of the frying pan into the fire And stuck within a black box he didn't desire or require. Now his
fufickle Ford didn't help his disposition By being selective with its defective transmission, Dave waved Fords tragic wand in hopes to hit First, On some Select times, contrarily, he found it Reversed. Hearing rumblings from where the rubber meets the road Dave found his fFirestone treads all ready and set to explode, Soon at his local Ford front office Dave became a familiar face; Out back Jesús soon gave Dave his Permanently Reserved space. As the 'winter' days shortened and his warranty ran short The cost of upkeeping his ol' hoss caused pause for thought, His never-trusty Black Beauty was becoming a broken hack Only fit for sitting up on cinder-blocks in the paddock out back. 'Twas on midwinters day, down to a chilly 80 degrees, The sun burning his eyes, slanting through the Olive trees, As the speedo clicked over 60,000 miles Dave gave a groan, Driving out of his limited warranty and into the Twilight Zone. Soon came the day his Exploder's air-con turned to steam, This was one miracle fufix beyond even Jesús and his team, So, like Ford's lousy warranty, we'll cut short Dave's sorry tale- Out back went the boiling Ford, part garage project, part fire sale.
