be-ribboned wedding car, Continental,
was reserved and not for rental.
did bride’s father bribe the chauffeur?
– six US cylinders proudly purr!
church too close to reception,
new-crowned queen made interception:
driver instructed on a scenic route
patriarchal plans redundant, moot.
plans upset – bride said “tough,
five minute limo ride not enough.”
newly-weds waved, royally cool,
girls smiled, petrol-heads drooled.
laid back in luxury, nuptial stars,
bride’s father queried where was car…
finally arrived, driver honked horn,
newly-minted couple, hearts airborne.
