1 Poem by G David Schwartz

I Never Had A Packard

I never owned a Packard
But I was not a slackerard
I would get out and walk
In and out and around the partook
I never had a Chevy
Thought my friend Bill did
When he graduated high-school
When we were just kids
I never had a Ford,
A Buick or any other
Why that was
you'll have to ask me mother
But I rarely walked
I was a lazy kid
I saved the money from pop bottles
And bought myself a Schwinn
