How beastly a stick-shift is

How beastly a stick-shift is

especially the clutch itself.

Stalling, sputtering, utterly unbearable -

I think I will just drift home.

Changing from first to second to third

smooth as a calm ocean;

Yet from stop to first -

stalling, sputtering, utterly unbearable.

Out my window, you -

driving along shifting so easily.

The trees are walking passed me!

Oh, no! Down the hilll I go.
