Tiny Lund in Egypt

Tiny Lund In Egypt




When Tiny Lund
went to Egypt land

It was as it was
with him - as it was with Tiny
Big! That was the joke!

Barely fitting as he crawled
in the driver’s window
of the Number 21 Ford

Dwarfed it if he stood
Astride it. Red
And white
Number 21 ENGLISH MOTORS

He’d go through
flames
and
In and among the pyramids
In his serial day
high sweeping sprays
of sand
followed

In the Ford
late model stocker
Raging through papyri tree groves
the Nascar Desert Fox
Lund

Surprising all cause
he wasn’t so fast
but
one day
he’d win big.
don’t blink.

Tiny Lund
Winks - chance speaks
To the sphinx.


-- Jack Vaughan, 2008
