An Elegy and an Epithet for Stilly's Truck
by Ford Rambler
Here rests its hood upon the lap of earth
A truck to fortune and to fame unknown.
Fair automotive science frowned not on its humble birth,
And nigh a Sesquidecade marked it for her own.
Large was its capacity, and its tranny sincere,
Heaven did a recompense as largely send:
It gave to Stilly all it had, a tear,
It gained from her ('twas all it wished), a friend.
No farther seek its merits to disclose,
Or draw its frailties from their dread abode,
(There they alike in trembling hope repose)
The bosom of the junkyard, and its end.
