The Baby Bimmer

I wrote the following piece back in 2005 after BMW first announced the 1 series concept car to an astonished world. I thought I’d publish it here in the hope that I’ll revive that passion one more time!

‘A new baby is born’                                   was the news highlight of the day

I could not  imagine                                    that machos could breed

Until I saw the innocence                            in its angle looking eyes

Evil?                                                            Oh NO

Behemoth?                                                 Oh NO

Looking at the dynasty                              You may feel the difference

Smelling some thing fishy?                         go ahead blow out your nose

Eyes alone don’t give you vision                needed to see the beauty

"But,Why would a Genie break                  out from his bottle ?"

Maybe because the bottle                         has no climate control inside

Or maybe the time has come                     to prove something to the world:

"To Succeed where other                          masters have not is not a usual thing"

It is overwhelming to see                         the waited baby spreading wings to reach the sky

So buddy,Hold on your breath                 & tune in to Germany

It is only a few months until                    our Bavarian friends give birth to their uber-hatch

Don’t rush up your judgment                  Babies are God’s gift

To a world where babies….                     no longer cry
