My ninety two Jetta is starting to pout,
As I drive the new Twenty Twelve Explorer about,
The Man is impressed with what is on board,
He can’t believe that this “IS a Ford?!”.
Bluetooth that connects my iPhone with ease,
So when then kids ask for Gaga,
They’ll just have to say please.
With a touch of a switch,
On my steering controls,
I have everything that I need with options I couldn’t even venture to know.
A screen display that shows a map,
Heat and A/C seats with just a tap,
How cool is that!
The kids CHOOSE to sit,
In the third row,
It’s all kinds of roomy,
With drink holders,
and places for snacks.
I really don’t mind,
Them so far away,
I can hear myself think,
That’s my luxury,
That’s my play.
From upright to flat.
With a touch of a button it’s no sweat off my back.
And if I really need the space,
The third row can stow,
So we can take our Ikea purchases to go.
This all feels like luxury that I can afford!
I just can’t believe that this is a Ford.
The Man was concerned about fuel economy,
But with an EcoBoost engine,
It’s fuel saving technology.
Even with gas savings,
It can still powerfully tow,
But with the fuel-efficiency that now beats other SUV’s at the auto show.
My son started to cry,
“Don’t give it back!”,
“Mommy we could even take this to the cabin and back!”.
But it just isn’t ours,
So we will have to let it go,
If it’s meant to be ours,
Then Daddy will say it’s so!
