  • Life is Like a Tire

    Now that I’m past Seven-Three,
    taking Stock of What ails Me.
    Searched for Something to Compare,
    chose a Tire filled with Air.

    Trying hard to Cast my Luck,
    being Vain as any Buck,
    Wimpy tires Want to Shun,
    I Select a Big Truck One.

    Once brand New with Lots of Tread,
    fearless Of what’s up Ahead.
    Grip the Roads in weather Bad,
    lesser Now but Just a Tad.

    Miles pile Up and Fast at That,
    though Can fix When even Flat.
    Limp along – Stretch out some More,
    even Though know What’s in Store.

    Now the Tread is Almost Bald,
    Golden Miles is what It’s Called.
    Hope when Reach that Final Bump,
    Eco Friendly – Not the Dump.
