Test Drive

Whoever knows the mystique

Of driving a muscle car

Hearing the resonance

Of the detonating ignition

The test drive

Rushing explosively

Like a land rocket

Over desert flats

Axels and tie-rods and gears

Bursting the acceleration

Of sand into brown clouds

Of visionary power

Brakes and tires

Screeching the torque force

Out of alignment

Skid stopping just long enough

To let the romantic driver

Embrace the energy

Of the crowning sales pitch
