The Automobile Mechanic

           The Automobile Mechanic

The automobile mechanic was originally
a car owner who carried out his own repairs
during the turn of the 19th Century.
These days, it is a person who endeavours to fix
the car problems of the everyday motorist
he is part engineer, detective, and miracle worker
all rolled into one, when the motorist expects their car
virtually fixed at a moment's notice.
He is truly a modern day unsung hero to most
who keep their car in tip top condition
although the mechanic seldom gets
the credit that he or she rightly deserves.

    We all rely on mechanics more than I know. and I just know how to change the oil in my parents car that's it. the other problems I am helpless for. Good line in the engineer/detective/miracle worker. I'd feel better to know there are some things in life mechanics need to rely on also, otherwise they are gods.

    Hello Donna, I am happy you enjoyed the poem I wrote this tribute back in 2000, it was one of my original poems, I made a comeback in 2012 when I wrote a lot of the newer poems I am still writing today, I was originally a story writer that switched to poetry. I have 58 in all here, feel free to view and comment on my work . John
