Volkswagen Van
a poem for Mr. Beer and Hockey

I went to look at
An old VW camper
It started right up
There was a bad noise
In the engine

I told the guy I wanted to hook
It up to a diagnostics machine
He said, "Go ahead"
And handed me the keys

The guy at the shop
Said, "Don't bother.
Listen to that. The engine
Is Shot"

I thought about knocking him
Way down on the price
And putting in a new engine
But I knew I had enough
Problems in life

On the way back
I realized that I had never
Checked to see if the
Radio worked
So I turned it on

The Grateful Dead were singing
I almost bought the fucking thing
