Haiku Friday - Car Shopping

Haiku Friday

My taste in cars can
be compared to that of some
World War II veterans or

maybe to your great
aunt Gert, who can barely see
over the dashboard.

See, we like them big,
American-made, with a
smooth ride under worn leather.

But, ah, the high price--
three bucks and change per gallon
into the ozone.

Eyes closed, I dream of
my bio-diesel Caddy
that smells like French fries.


Haiku Friday comes to you courtesy of organizers Jennifer, at Playgroups are No Place for Children, and Christina, at A Mommy Story.

VW is coming out with a new disel SUV that will debut in May. They are getting 40-60 mpg in Europe. I'm planning to get one. Seems like a happy compromise. Safety with fuel efficiency.

Great haiku! It's so nice to have these tanks with so much room, but not so nice at the gas pump.

Excellent ku (wow you're good). What a great idea - except at fill up time with such a big tank. Compromise-city! ;)
