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. : )
