Goodbye, Mercury, We’ll Hardly Miss Ye

by Aaron Turpen, EVMeme

Goodbye, brand Mercury,
We’ll hardly miss ye.
You were not quite Lincoln
And not quite Ford.

Sweet Mercury, you were
The shitty brand for old folks
Who couldn’t afford
The other nameplates.

Those codgers for whom
A land yacht was a must
Whose style was defined
By size and mass.

And though you tried
You could not shake
That stigma which
Our generation to you gave.

So farewell, brand Mercury.
You will not be much missed;
Nor your land yachts and
Glorified, plastified Fords.

Goodbye, Mercury
We’ll hardly miss ye.
