Hitchhiking for a Date

6 Jan

My old Chevy

purchased for $150

was broken down

it was old and slow

as date night arrived

I planned to hitchhike

to a dance and walked

to a busy highway

a police lady stopped

asked if she could help

I smiled, said it was friday

I wanted to go to a dance

and my car was in the shop

She wished me good luck

and winked good-bye

A fire-red Corvette slowed

a girl in her late teens

with a gorgeous smile

asked if I would like

to go for a ride

this was the beginning

of a dazzling relationship

I’m not sure what changed

we stopped dating

maybe my Chevy

drove too slow

and her Corvette

drove too fast

the relationship ended

as quickly as it began
