Verse – Kissing in a Hearse

Only college seniors were allowed
cars on campus in those ancient days.
Four guys, Juniors, searched car lots and found
just the thing, a ’47 hearse,
Pontiac, straight 8, just fifty bucks
each. A Senior said he’d claim the beast
legally was his. Quadruple dates
were the thing: one couple in the seat,
driving, six would lounge on pillows where
caskets usually rode. Of course, at times
two young people would kiss, death be damned.

  1. Enjoyed the poem. It reminded me of a very funny episode of “Keeping up Appearances” that involved a hearse as transport. 😅 A good laugh helps sometimes. If you don’t know this series, I highly recommend looking for it on your local PBS station.
