On the road, I watch my gauge;
Lately, this incites my rage!.
Petrol pricing makes me balk!.
Maybe I would rather walk!

Still, my dial points to "E,"
As some sheik delights in glee!.
Where's the nation's G-N-P!?

Oil barons, heed the call!
Can't you hear us caterwaul!?
Will you ratchet up the price!?
C'mon, bigwigs! Just play nice!

does it have to rhyme and/or have meter!?

Fish are aquatic animals that swim in the deep blue sea!. The have gills!.!.!.etcetc!.

aquatic, swimming in the
Strange gills that!.!.!.


I'd try four stanzas in 'Terza Rima" (Dorothy Parker was wonderful at it; Dante wasn't bad, either!.)

I have a car that spits and sputters
'cause it doesn't like the words I utter
as every day goes up the gas
and my paycheck doesn't seem to last
so next time I decide to roam
