Ode to a Jimi™ Bracket
When first the MR2 I bought
I opened the engine lid and had a thought
"What the hell's that hunk of metal on top"
I stood astounded and had to stop.
So out of place this spider looked,
with springs and pulleys and legs and hooks
"Oh well" I thought "it'll have to stay."
but out of the mist came a man one day
His name was Jimi, an engineer
Small in stature, but knew no fear.
"I'll defeat the spider." he thought to himself
and put his plans away on the shelf
He toyed and tinkered, bent and bashed,
Took his time with the job as he didn't want it hashed.
Then one day triumphantly pulled from his jacket
and revealed to us all, a Jimi™ Bracket.
The spider was no more and the engine bay open
That large chunk of metal, soon forgotten
Some MK1 owners began to sing,
"The Jimi™ Bracket certainly is a wonderful thing"
