Saint Peter, here she comes -- a poem for Friday



Eulogy for one I just met 

For a sweet young lady
I only met today
Even before we met
 I knew, as good as gold 
 
 The car she drove told all

Wild at times, purrs sweetly
Thrifty, saved her pennies
Older Mustangs don't lie  

Colored a sooty dark
Matched her hair, soft, black, tamed
No spoilers or mag wheels
Fairly mild mannered two


When she spoke, so polite
Thank you ma'am, yes sir please
Loud, authority sure
Mellow exhausts, throaty
 
Parked curbside here she lies
Prepared for her new life
Heaven bent, now she'll speed
Saint Peter traffic cop

as noted - the comparisons, of car and lady - you've presented a class act, with no tones of machismo to muscle in and spoil it - loved this:

Colored a sooty dark
Matched her hair, soft, black, tamed

unexpected but delightful topic and encounter :)
