Car Of The Year

I graduated from Elgin Academy
in 1967, Valedictorian of 32. When
we arrived back to the family home
in Winfield, there was a brand new 
Mercury Cougar....Car Of The Year.
The whole family knew it was for me.
I drove that bitch relentlessly that
summer. Once, up to Milwaukee, 
then, down to St Louis to see a girl.
My dad was furious about the 
expenses. I shrugged my shoulders
because I didn't
know, why he would give me it and
be mad about it afterwards.
