Clouds of exhaust contaminate the air as the engine begins to crumble
fill the atmosphere with confusion and discord
Static reverberates within the car
No news, no music, nothing new,
The 1971 Chevrolet, paralyzed on the side of the road
limited resources and limited funding, limiting learning
next repair shop isn’t for miles
Red automotive paint allures the neighboring driver’s eyes as it streaks across the pavement,
shocking everything that comes into its path
The Tesla flashes to the end of the road,
to be greeted by the next highway named Employment
Will the Honda Civic ever be able to catch up with the Tesla,
and be able to go where the Tesla will go,
without burning out?
Or will it stay in the desert we call inequitable funding?
