A sonnet for the Boy, the Car and the Curator

UCL course: 
MA Hebrew and Jewish Studies
Entry: 

An old and painted convertible car
Displayed in a magical autobus
Who would think the car would get this far
Causing karaoke and lots of buzz

Thanks to the boy and the car that he licked
I am utterly and completely drunk
Learnt the diff’rence between necked, nucked and nicked
Heartbreaking ballads, rock, blues, pop and funk

What happened to the car? And to the boy?
Please contribute whatever you may know
What my discipline says is “Oy va voy!”
Your knowledge will help the retrieval so!

A poem written in ink on my hand
Will I suffer the fate of that young lad?
