Car Service

I drop off my car in anticipation, That it doesn’t require, complete restoration. ‘You’ll have it by two’ the young lady said Then I am told it’s five thirty instead. They text a report, the news is not good Do I have to confirm? I am told that I should! For the break pads are worn, the suspension is shot, The tyres threadbare and the engine’s too hot. The exhaust has a hole and the brake fluids low, The clutch is a slipping and the wipers too slow, The paintwork is poor and the bonnet is dented, Should’ve had it in sooner, this could have been prevented. It’s an arm and a leg when the invoice arrives, Which I have to pay or my car I’m deprived! Now the automobile’s a fairly recent invention, But these service costs surely weren’t the intention!

HILARIOUS! Your car repairs really were full of rhythm and rhyme---even if you and your car were singing the blues. Just loved this one, Ron. Ciao, Gershon

Ha, this was spot on Ron. I am in this business so I can relate to your humorous but definitely expensive poem. At least one thing...your pen seem to be running properly. : )
