Charlotte to the Rescue
Charlotte and I went to visit Margaret and Ray,
They lived in the Metroplex.
I came down with the flu in the worst way,
It was serious because my body demanded sleep.
We needed to be back in Odessa,
I had to report to work early next day.
Charlotte said, “Don’t worry, I’ll drive the car.
You just tilt back and hit the hay.”
We owned a little Austin.
Of course, it had a stick shift.
She had never driven that I could remember,
But she was full of confidence.
“Don’t you remember,” she smiled,
“That long Sunday afternoon?
We went to that deserted road,
And I drove the wheels off your Mainline Ford.”
Way to Go, Mom
