An Ode To My Car

It sits there waiting Never complaining Like a devoted little puppy Do we really appreciate What life would be like Without this friend so trusty We take it for granted This mechanical friend Never showing appreciation We should let it know How we cherish it so Our sole means of transportation There once was a time In years gone by Long before the automobile We walked, we rode A bike or a horse Now just sit there at the wheel So treat this friend Like one of the family You will never ever go wrong Her engine will purr Her tires will sing A happy little motoring song! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Lovely Ode Jack! My aunt used to tell us,'don't come between a man and his car', a lesson she learnt the hard way when she tried to 'redecorate' her husband's car. Lol, the sweet man turned into a raving beast! Needless to say, she never repeated that mistake.

    "how do you know it's a she"... hmmmm good question! Maybe because cars are always there for you when you need them just like your dear loving wife! LOL Love and hugs, Jack

    My brother gets a truck and 400,000 miles later he's had two engines and swears it still purrs like an angel. The same with his motorcycles... My Dad keeps saying that when he dies he wants my brother Dale to get his cycle and truck so he'll finally have something hat runs... LOL

    Sweet Jack, but the only car that meant anything to me was my very first one. I loved it to bits, rusty little bits xx
