Oh My Car


My car my car it will not go,
I think its time to part.
To chuck the signs that say on Tow,
And buy 1 that will start.

I turn the key yet there’s no life,
It really is a pain.
I need a car that has no strife,
This 1 drives me in sane.

I think I'll get a smallish 1,
The type that needs no wind.
So when the lights change i am Gone,
To leave the rest behind.

I like the type of car that’s fast,
The one's that race about.
So foot down yeah & don't come last,
Show them there’s no doubt.

Now safety is an issue here,
Don't drive when you feel low.
& stay away from dirty beer,
Or you’re life will be no more.

The piece of junk i own today,
Don't get me very far.
It only goes a little way,
then the taxi is my car.

I'll get it fixed and sell it on,
I don't care what i get.
Just so long as this is gone,
I'll sell with no regret.

I will make sure that my next car,
Is different than my last.
This one no doubt will get me far,
And dam sure will be fast.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
