A Trucker's Day

A big Mack truck
Can get stuck good
In muck road ways.

Put on the chains
Traction gains hold
Hate rains in Spring.

It’s a mell of a hess
But I guess a
Good test of nerves.

Then I’ll get back
Wash the Mack and
then stack the chains.

End the day’s strife
See my life love,
my wife. I’m home.

    The perils of winter driving are well conveyed in your poem, Rob. Amazing how you were able to tell a story using this form. I think most of us had trouble just coming up with one verse. Awesome! Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn
