And Backed My Car into a Tree
Buy the book My Dog Likes to Disco
and backed my car into a tree.
I wrote this poem back to front
or else you may end up like me.
So do not try this silly stunt,
I’m stunned and don’t know what to say.
Now things could not be any worse.
while driving in my car today.
I wrote this poem in reverse
