lightening the load

A new version of What's in the Truck.
Guess  how much it cost to take this truckload of craperoni to the dump?
Worth every penny.

Pickups on Parade 1x1

I had lots of pickups
my first, a Slant 6
dune to dirt without a hiccup
then some ‘Cuda blew a kiss

ran with some muscle
then came to my senses
gave up the hustle
‘trucked back ridin’ fences

My first pickup was a 1956 Dodge flathead 6 (? memory fails).
It came to an ignominious end when I attempted to repair the gas tank and leaked gas all over the Vassar parking lot, resulting in a call to the campus fire department.

The Dearth

horse heads on pickups
we suffer a dearth
the world in a stickup
by the digital earth

my old green Chevy
proud Palomino, both doors
time was aplenty
for the artist’s slow draw

I wudn’t no cowboy
but my heart was light
‘could feel hoofbeats around me
when I pulled up at the light

I owned a little Toyota pick-up once; she was called "Whitey." Her previous owner was rather large so Whitey listed a bit port side. But she was loyal and I miss her.

Nobody guessed how much.. .

JF Jude said...

Based on the NYMEX rate for craperoni @ $ 8.75 per hundredweight, the total dollar calculus = $14.67

$32.40

40 pounds

$24.80

The other question is: What did you bring back from the dump?

Claudia said...

OOps, had the pounds wrong. It was 200.
Also I brought back an old waring blender container and top—not the bottom—which I think will fit one of my old blenders. But it didn't weigh much, being plastic.
