An outing in the 50s

A Day at the Track

by Sharon Meda

Rodders fire up their souped up hotties
Burning rubber to set up for the drag.
They're hoping they won't stack up
Winners go home with the pinks and the brag.

Big Daddy shows with his chrome plated baby
The ankle-biters back at the pad in town,
They've cut to see the boss hot rods
And later they'll watch some cats get down.

The drips are up on the hill sharing a weed.
The beaniks are here for the flash.
The greasers hope to pick up hip chicks,
Get lucky later at the passion pit bash.

If the heat don't crash, it's all copacetic
Made in the shade, Man. You dig?
