He Loved His 1956 Ford
He loved his 1956 Ford and hated his father.
His mother went to church every Sunday She did not believe in God.
She did not until she was on her deathbed.
(Just in case.)
His brother was dead but rode his ass every day.
He could not play hockey very well,
But that’s okay, he did not like hockey.
He stole but hated it when people stole from him.
He had a girlfriend and she had several boyfriends.
He ate his vegetables but preferred Cheese Whiz.
He was seventeen and the best years were behind him.
