[Why it should be necessary]

Why it should be necessary to write a poem

Because each day the motor car proliferates

And more resembles a fine or very fine thing

I am not sure.

I can rationalize it is because the spirit

Is not served by these

That are or may be each a golden calf

To the proud owner.

Or then again it may be simple jealousy

That by comparison my car looks less respectable

And not being prosperous I resent prosperity.
