A Car Is Just A Car! Poem by Sylvia Chidi

A Car Is Just A Car!

Rating: 4.2

A car is a car
If it can ride you nearby or far

A car is a car
When it gets you in time to the bar

A car is a car
When you are addressed as Madam or Sir

But for some
A car is not just a car
It is a home
After a daylight roam
It is a home
After a nightly roam
Kind of like a homelessness
Reoccurring syndrome

Now give me any banger of a car
I'll give it hotly showers of a sauna
Play sweet tunes to it from a guitar
By the time you watch me stand by it
And pose with an exotic cigar
Waiting to take you out to dinar
You may even prefer it to a modernised jaguar

You see, to me
A car is just a car
Be it in a new silver shining coat
Or one decorated with tarnished scars
The simple reality
Is they all have similar
Passenger capacity

Whether be it a personalised 8 seater stretch limousine
Or a Ferrari with an exploding roaring engine
A car is a car
A vehicle of motion
A medium of transportation
Even when it shows signs of erosion
As long as it can move from junction to junction
I personally sanction

A car is just a car

A car is just a car. You are sure right about this one. it does not matter whether it is a Lexus or an old fashioned Ford long as it gets you from point A to point B. A good write. Much appreciated.

A car is just a peice of metal, but when you bumping 21 in it, it comes alive, but i disagree with this poem, smart cars are the way to go.

i personally disagree, i need space and a smart car does not offer that they have neither power nor grace i can't drive one without fearing what I'll look like if some hits me but that's a personal opinion
