Lost rally car

Have you seen
Number sixteen
Last checked in
At point nineteen

Never made twenty
Had petrol plenty
No one's seen
Number sixteen

                            I saw a car
                            From afar
                            Up that hill
                            Could it be there still?

                            Near a home
                            All alone
                            Looked abandoned
                            Near the oakland

            Yes, I saw them
            Going round the bend
            Looked pretty lost
            With shattered exhaust

            Making a mess
            I confess
            I thought they'd given up
            It'll need a massive clean up


Poem inspired by the picture " Wind of History by Jacek Yerka" provided by The Mag.

First prize for a unique take. Car Number some strange way, giving it a number gives this car and the people inside place and personality, kinda like that Stephen King novel.
