( With all due respect for & appreciation of
those who have suffered due to runaway Toyotas )
Talk about brand loyalty: ever since my first Corolla,
at the tender young age of 17, I have always had Toyotas.
A Cressida, Corona & my trusty 4Runner truck,
through a Cam-ry & Prius, with each, I've had good luck.
Never had one problem 'til this morning at a red-light.
Red Ferra-ri right next to me, gunning up right to the redline.
With me in my green Prius, oh, for sure, this was his big joke.
But then, when the light changed color, it's my tires that now smoked.
RUNAWAY TOYOTA, the lights are flashing red.
RUNAWAY TOYOTA, I might just end up dead
if I don't run over pedestrians or kill someone else instead
with my RUNAWAY TOYOTA.
Ferrari way back- there, never moved one single inch-.
Flashing red & blue lights in my rearview as the cop closed for the pinch
But my Prius was not list'ning to commands I gave to the brakes.
For the following five hours-, I led a high-speed chase.
Great gas economy across 3 state lines.
2 choppers, 14 squad cars & a total waste of time
'til they had enough, dropped a spike strip
& I slammed into a fence.
My trial comes up next week,
pleading The Toyota Defense.
[spoken] My little runaway ...
Now I have a legitimate excuse for all my speeding tickets.
Wonder if I can appeal retroactively? ...
All those little old men plowing through neighborhood
farmers' markets? ... Toyotas?
Toyota can't blame all of these problems
on floor mats or gas pedals, fallen water bottles or driver error.
Being from West Virginia, I still have all of my Toyotas
as status symbols, ... up on blocks in the front yard.
"You asked for it, you bought it": TOYMOTOR
Oh, ... know anybody who might be interested
in a slightly-used Toyota? ... Great price ...
