No Cash for this Clunker

Detroit dies a slow death
while Escalade drivers search
for an open gas station

General Malaise for the working stiffs
unionized to prevent profits from ruling
over the “rights” of entrenched lifers

Imports infest one model at a time
seeping into the culture like an arsenic drip
picking off jobs right down the line

If we took all the Hummers, Yukons and Suburbans
and melted them all down into a new mindset
would it still be too late to salvage this Detroit junker?
