Handwritten Letter 1934 (a found poem)

by Scott Gregory


Tulsa Okla.
10th April

Mr. Henry Ford
Detroit, Mich.
Dear Sir. —

While I still have got breath in my lungs
I will tell you what a dandy car you make.
I have drove Fords
When I could get away
With one.
For sustained speed
And freedom
From trouble
The Ford has got every other car skinned
And even if my business
Hasn’t been strictly legal
It don’t hurt anything
To tell you what a fine car you got in the V8 —

Yours truly
Clyde Champion
