"A Morgan Poem"
Written by "The Light Car and Cyclecar," 16th April 1926
List while I tell of the Morgan,
Its charms, its needs and its works,
The joy of trouble-free trips,
And places where danger lurks.
Look to your rad, in the morning (are you laughing)
To see if the water is there,
And if it is frosty at even
To empty take every care.
Next in order, see to your oil,
To be without is a crime;
In engine sweetness you'll XL
If same is free from grime.
Your gearbox, steering and hubs,
Need greasy attention too,
And after each five hundred miles
Well – there's a job for you.
Occasionally, one a thousand,
Part each of your springs with grease,
Reverse the chains, oil inside the clutch,
And the lot will run with ease.
Don't slam the clutch into action,
Don't put oil where there's dirt.
Wipe it all off carefully
With a rag or a piece of your shirt.
Thanks for reading this nonsense
It is not written for fun.
It's just a needful reminder
For a safe and happy run.
