Taco Bell or Bust!
In need of break from things all spurious
And movies named The Fast and Furious
But you’ll have fun, if you read on
With tons of laughs when we are done
This one is silly, kinda whacko
A poem with used cars and tacos!
Let’s start with Jerry, ‘cause that’s his name
And eating out, his claim to fame
Though always broke, you can’t but like him
He eats cheap tacos when mood strikes him
One day he had a hankering
But bank account was tank-ering
He had enough for quesadilla
But how he’d get it, no idea
He didn’t even have bus fare
So just how was he to get there?
Five dollar bill was all he got
But ‘cross the street was used car lot
So Jerry knew just what to do
I think you have an inkling too…
He crossed the road and went inside
And found a dude, and asked for ride
The salesman was alone all day
And happy Jerry came his way
So cheerily he grabbed a key
And said to Jerry, “follow me!”
He clearly was a good ol’ sport
He headed to a cheap Escort
So Jerry got behind the wheel
The salesman said it was a steal!
And Jerry grinned and did agree
Though he would need to test and see
They’d driven for about three miles
With salesman chatting for a while
And though you’d tell just by the smell
They came upon a Taco Bell!
He stepped on gas and tires burned
As into drive thru Jerry turned
The salesman was a-taken back
And grabbed his chest, feigned heart attack
Jerry then assured him well
Tis short detour through Taco Bell
Before he had time to outcry
Five dollar tacos did Jerry buy!
He laughed with glee and headed out
And shoved a taco into mouth
When salesman finally gathered thoughts
He realized he had been “got”
Before they’d driven very far
He shouted loudly “STOP THE CAR!”
He ordered Jerry to the curb
It was quite clear he was disturbed
So Jerry sheepishly agreed
For in the end, fulfilled his need
The salesman got behind the wheel
As into traffic he did peel
And Jerry walked the last two miles
Full of tacos and a smile!
I hope that Jerry helps you see
It takes some creativity
You’ve hit a snag, just use your head
Resourcefulness will get you fed!
